Michael Palin's New Europe: 6/7: From Pole to Pole

On a journey through Poland, from the port of Gdansk in the north to the Slovakian border south of the Tatra Mountains, Michael considers the upheavals that have traumatised the country for 70 years. He visits Auschwitz; meets the former president Lech Walesa, whose free trade union Solidarity helped loosen Communism's grip on Eastern Europe; and marvels at the miracle of Warsaw. He also accepts a cameo role with one of Poland's most famous cabaret groups and drives a steam locomotive.
Repeated on Wednesday at 8pm on BBC4 and next Saturday on BBC2 (HD)

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.
