In the early hours of 24 June 1948, the Russians stopped all road and rail traffic into the western sections of Berlin. They also cut the supply of electricity from eastern power stations to the west. The blockade of Berlin, which was to last for
11 terrible months, had begun. John and Ann Tusa tell the epic story of the blockade and of how the western powers transformed a pitifully makeshift airlift into a relief column of a size and scale never before imagined, but which for months stood on the brink of failure.

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.
