by CAMPBELL MUIRHEAD with Crawford Logan
' I was quite taken aback when I found this diary in a heap of some old papers of mine. Al compiled in a wee black book, and rather neatly written out. All about my experiences as a Lancaster bomb-aimer, between 29 May and 13
August 1944-aged about 22 at the time.On reading it I coutd hardly believe I was involved in all these air-raids over France and the Third Reich. ! was one of the iueky ones who survived-many of my pals did not.' Directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS

Last of six programmes about men and women who live in Britain because they

Iranians
After the overthrow of the Shah, many Iranians living abroad were afraid to go back
home in case they fell foul of the Islamic courts. And since President Bani-Sadr lost
the struggle for power, the numbers seeking asylum abroad have grown. Should
they be allowed to stay? How safe is it for 'westernised' Iranians to go back? Robert
Rowe talks to Iranian exiles caught between fear of the mullahs and the
uncertainties of our asylum policy.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
