NEW In the first of a new six-part M series, Edward Blishen , himself a diarist for over 60 years, discovers how private lives are shaken by world events using extracts from diaries of two world wars. These include a soldier on leave, desperate to taste the pleasures of life before returning to his battalion on the Somme; a young nurse, sneaking out for a date with a handsome French patient; the writings of a pacifist; and the secret diary of a prisoner-of-war in the Far East, his own "personal act of defiance".

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.
