'Let there be no more 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 major appraisal of what
Russians think of the West, as the USSR holds its own commemoration of the end of the Second World War. The words of the programme title are used in a Russian toast, often drunk in front of foreigners. These words recall the devastating impact of the War on the Soviet Union, which suffered 20 million dead.
Do the Russians believe the toast can have any meaning in these days of nuclear confrontation?
Gordon Clough is in Russia to talk to ordinary people about the impact of war on their lives and to observe the elaborate preparations for the 40th anniversary of the end of what they call the 'Great Patriotic War'.
And. as the Geneva talks on arms control resume, Professor John Erickson , Britain's foremost authority on the Soviet Union, assesses the motives behind Russian hopes for a revival of the old wartime co-operation between East and West.

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.
