The War Lords

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.
Six programmes. 5: Roosevelt
A. J. P. Taylor tells the story of Franklin Delano Roosevelt , four times elected President of the United States, who brought America into the Second World War after Pearl Harbour. ' This strange man, the most enigmatic of the War Lords, though perhaps not the greatest of them, was the most successful. It was Roosevelt who made the United States the most powerful country in the world. But now, if one looks at him again, there is about him a sort of emptiness.' a. j. p. TAYLOR describes the personal decisions Roosevelt made which changed the course of the war. He assesses Roosevelt's relationships with the other Allied leaders, and reveals the strange background of the American President's secret life.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
