The Valiant Years
A film series based on SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL'S
MEMOIRS OF WORLD WAR II
Churchill's words spoken by Richard Burton
Narrator, Gary Merrill
Musical score, Richard Rodgers
EPISODE 21:
The Beginning of the End
Late summer, 1944. After seven weeks of unbroken military success hopes run high that the Nazi world will collapse. But Eisenhower's thrusts towards Antwerp and Verdun meet with increasing German resistance: and, of 10,000 paratroops dropped at Arnhem to seize and consolidate a bridgehead over the Rhine, only 2,400 survive after holding out for eight days against fierce German attacks, while a desperate and unsuccessful attempt is made to relieve them. At the Dumbarton Oaks conference a new world organisation is born--' The United Nations '; and after travelling to Moscow to see Stalin, Churchill visits France where he joins the Americans in celebrating Thanksgiving Day.

: The Newcomers

Devised and written by Colin Morris
A story of a London family adapting to life in a country town

The Newcomers: A twice-weekly serial about Londoners moving with their factory to the country.
Ellis Cooper, shop superintendent of a firm making components for computers, tells his wife Vivienne that his factory is moving to a sleepy country town in East Anglia and he has been offered promotion to works manager. Vivienne, city born and bred, a modern woman, marriage counsellor, content with her home and social circle, quails; her elder son, Philip, faced with changing sixth forms, hates the prospect; Maria, aged sixteen, keen on riding, romantic about the country, sides with her father; Lance, thirteen, the problem of the family, a cinema fan frequently asked to remove himself from the auditorium, imagines himself roaming the woods shooting game.
Angleton - don't look for it on the map, but it exists - has been invaded many times since the Romans. Half the younger generation have left town by the time they are twenty-one; a penny on the rates fails to raise a hundred pounds; unemployment is above the national average. The council, realising their town would die in a few years, have invited new blood.
They know rich agricultural land will vanish for ever under bricks and mortar, and the days when everyone knew everyone in the High Street will end. There will be strangers, used to buses every five minutes, expressing eloquent dissatisfaction with the lack of amenities.
For the 'strangers' on new housing estates there is loneliness, fear, and boredom. There are also new boy friends, new girl friends, new babies, feuds with farmers, brittle industrial relations, and civic intrigue - copious material for the twice-weekly serial.

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.
