For many Londoners the safest refuge from the German bombing raids during the Second World War was the London Underground. There, on platforms, they slept as the bombs fell. Inevitably there were tragedies. One night at Balham, where 600 people were sheltering, a direct hit on the station killed 60 people and at Bethnal Green a woman carrying a baby tripped on the stairs and in the ensuing confusion 178 people died, crushed to death in a space scarcely larger than a garage. Some of the men and women who shared in this bizarre life underground recount their experiences.

A History of the Crusades
A series of eight programmes presented by Malcolm Billings 5: Jerusalem fell to Saladin in 1187. The call for a new crusade went out almost at once and the first to respond was the German Emperor - followed by the King of France and Richard the Lionheart. After two years campaigning, Richard eventually came home, a disappointed man. Subsequent crusades failed to regain
Jerusalem for any length of time, although the crusaders did maintain a hold on the Holy
Land, with the port of Acre as their capital. But how long could it last?

The End of the Road?
There has rarely been a more testing time for the European motor industry. With a still uncertain financial position, it is facing an uphill struggle against the Japanese and a new challenge from countries such as Korea. Britain in particular has to decide whether more money should be put in to maintain an independent volume car manufacturer.
David Wheeler examines the various choices facing the European car industry. Producer MARK LAITY

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.
