: 'THE GLORY THAT IS GREECE'

Programme to celebrate the spirit of the Greek Army and the Greek people on the first anniversary of the entry of Greece into the war. Written by Louis MacNeice. Music composed and conducted by George Walter. Produced by Laurence Gilliam
When Mussolini , after endless fanfaronades and boasting, sent his divisions marching through Albania into Greece, he reckoned without the extraordinary spirit of the Greek people. In this programme Louis MacNeice , through the mouths of Greek soldiers of today, and through those of the Greek soldiers who held Thermopylae against the Persians, has drawn a picture of this spirit and what it has meant to Greece. The scenes are set in an Italian home, among the frozen hilltops of modern Greece, and in the war camps of centuries ago.
At Thermopylae the Persians were astonished to find the Greeks combing their hair as a sign that they wished to be well groomed for death. Such a spirit still prevails among a people who have for the time being lost their independence only in name to Hitler's panzer divisions.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
