The Complete Lessons of the War

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A sequence of poems by Henry Reed
Naming of Parts
Judging Distances
Movement of Bodies
Unarmed Combat
Returning of Issue
Spoken by HENRY REED and FRANK DUNCAN
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Naming of Parts is probably the best-known poem of the second world war and is now, incredibly, considered an appropriate subject for school examinations. It was first published in 1946 with Judging Distances and Unarmed Combat in Henry Reed's A Map of Verona. Movement of Bodies appeared in The Listener some years later. The final poem, Returning of Issue, was completed a short time ago.

The Complete Lessons of the War

Network Three, 14 February 1966 21.55






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.
