: AIR DEFENCE OFLONDON

Drill after Dark carried out by the 35th (1st Surrey Rifles)
Anti-aircraft Bn. R.E. (T.A.) in co-operation with the Royal Air Force from
The Headquarters, Camberwell
Weather permitting-and fog is the chief enemy-listeners are to hear and to visualise tonight a searchlight unit in action. The demonstration is part of an ordinary practice, the Royal Air Force providing a machine to fly within range of a light. The searchlight unit will be in action, manned by its team of ten. The sergeant in charge ; the lorry driver, whose engine provides the current for the lamp ; the lamp operator ; a sapper at the control arm ; two spotters with night glasses ; three more sappers operating the sound indicator ; and the tenth man preparing a hot meal for the others.
Listeners will have the added thrill-fog allowing-of hearing the R.A.F. pilot saying what it feels like to be ' caught ' in a searchlight, while those listeners within three miles of Camberwell will be able to see, as well as hear, all that is going on.

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.
