On a February night in 1933, the German parliament building in Berlin was set on fire. The Nazis accused the Communists, but many blamed the Nazis themselves. And

Whoever caused it, the fire at the Reichstag marked the start of a new stage in the Nazi reign of terror.
James Joll looks back at the fire and its awful consequences, and discusses why the bitter controversy over its causes continues today.

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.
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.
