: The Mighty Continent

A View of Europe in the Twentieth Century
A television history in 13 parts Written and narrated by John Terraine with personal comments by Peter Ustinov
12: A Certain Amount of Violence Belief in good intentions and corresponding hopes were dashed in 1956 - a year of violence inside the Mighty Continent. The Soviet Union imposed her will harshly on Poland and Hungary; Britain and France entered the trauma of Suez. Afterwards Western Europe drew in upon herself, forming EEC, the Common Market. Britain did not join at first, and when she tried to, found her way blocked by de Gaulle , who had returned to power.
In spite of all, affluence now came to Europe, and with it, in the 60s, a new unrest, constantly expressed in slogans and sayings of the New Left. ' Revolution is the festival of the oppressed ' ... ' Insurrectional activity is today the number one political activity ' , .. ' That a certain amount of violence will take place is inevitable.'

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.
