: Inside the Enigma

Twenty-Five Years of Reporting from Moscow
Russia ...is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma
Erik de Mauny was the BBC's first resident correspondent in the Soviet Union. At the beginning of May 1963, he went to cover the Wynne-Penkovsky trial and to open up the Moscow Office. Those were the days of Khrushchev and of the 'thaw'. He went back for a second term of duty in the 1970s, the days of Brezhnev and of the dissidents. To mark the first 25 years of the BBC's news and current affairs coverage from the USSR, he returns for a brief visit and, with the help of the BBC colleagues who succeeded him in the Moscow posting, he tries to assess whether in the age of Gorbachev, and ofglasnost, the mystery is beginning to dissolve or whether Churchill's definition still holds an element of truth.

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.

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.
