The Triumph of the West

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 view of world history in 13 parts by John Roberts. 12: The Decline of the West In the first half of this century, a stable world of optimism, sanity and progress seemed to go mad. Men lost faith in the civilisation of the West.
Its old heartland - Europe - was wracked by civil wars (1914-18,1939-45) and leadership passed to America.
Russia became separated from it and hostile. Economic failure, the rolling up of colonial empires, fragmentation in the arts and new discoveries in science and in the new science of the mind - psychology - all added to the unease. And in the East, Japan - first militarily, then economically - became a superpower.
But is the day of the West really done?

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.
