: Sunday Best: Life after Vietnam

Following on from last night's Archive Hour documentary Lance Corporal Baronowski's Vietnam, Alan Hall updates the stories of the US Marine's family and comrades. Baronowski's sister shares her fears on learning of her son determination to join the army; Alexander reveals how he still finds it impossible to listen to his brother's tapes; Ray Borowski tells of the battle that led to his medical discharge from the Marine Corps; and Tim Duffie explains why and how he managed to track down his old comrades and the family of his dead friend.

Michael Baronowski's (above) audio tapes about life as a US Marine in Vietnam made a wonderfully vivid Archive Hour, which was aired again yesterday, and won a Sony Gold award last year. This companion piece describes what happened next, from the moment Lance Corporal Baronowski was killed in action in 1966 to the making of the programme. His comrades, Tim Duffie and Ray Borowski, tell their stories of survival, accompanied by more snippets from Baronowski's tapes. Yet this is also a tale of coping with the indifference they met on their return to the US. "The only thing worse than being a 'vet' in the 'so what?' years was being the family of someone who died in Vietnam," says Duffie. And it was his search for former comrades and Baronowski's family that led to the rediscovery of the tapes. This is strong, first-hand stuff that will be very satisfying for anyone who heard the original documentary. Even as a piece of stand-alone radio, it's riveting because it is full of deeply felt emotion. Baronowski is shown to be an everyman figure as well as an individual - it is as if the identity of the unknown soldier has finally been revealed.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
