: WINSTON CHURCHILL

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 23:
Yalta
In an attempt to come to a better understanding with Russia, Churchill goes to Yalta, on the Black Sea, to meet Stalin and the now ailing Roosevelt. The dismembering of Germany and the partition of Berlin into four zones is agreed; the structure of the Security Council of the United Nations is discussed and the five permanent members are given the right of using the veto—a right which Russia is to use eighty-eight times in the years ahead. A secret agreement regarding Russia's participation in the war against Japan is made between Roosevelt and Stalin with Churchill's reluctant concurrence. As Churchill reports to the House on his return, the Russians already violate the Yalta agreement in Rumania-a pattern of things to come. But the United Nations survives.

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.
