A Little World of Our Own Wherever they ended up after being captured, the thousands of British PoWs in Europe had to face together the appalling fact that there was no foreseeable end to their imprisonment. Ignorant of the true course of the war - and of the circumstances of their loved ones at home - they had also to endure the physical distress of life in the camps: poor and insufficient food, overcrowding, the uncertain attitude of their guards and the sheer tedium of the unchanging daily routine. David Wade has talked to a number of former PoWs, and in this second of two programmes he constructs from their memories of 40 years ago a picture of what it was like to be a prisoner of war. Producer ALAN HAYDOCK

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
