True stories of the world we live In
16—'THE DRAGONFLY
FERRY'
When the Norwegian ship Dovrefiell ran aground in a gale in the Pentland Firth she radioed that she was in no immediate danger, but lifeboats and a destroyer went to her aid. Suddenly the signal ' situation dangerous' was received, and a new chapter in the history of saving life at sea began. Helicopters hovered above the waves breaking over the ship and rescued all forty-one aboard her.

News Summary; Our Day and Age: 2: Operation 'Snowdrop'

True stories of the world we live in.
Stephen Grenfell is the storyteller.

In mid-January 1955, the whole of northern Scotland lay gripped by the severest blizzards for more than a decade. Whole communities were cut off. In many places food was scarce and medical services could not be brought to outlying localities. This programme describes how a vast rescue operation was devised by the civil police at Wick, the Royal Navy at Lossiemouth, and the Royal Air Force at Kinloss, and how this operation was mounted to bring immediate aid and succour to the people of these stricken communities.
Production by Robin Richardson in the BBC's Aberdeen studios

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.
