Rt Hon Harold Macmillan in conversation with Robert McKenzie

The first of two programmes in which Harold MacMillan talks publicly for the first time about the events of 1961-1963, his last years as Prime Minister.
He faced many problems: the Common Market negotiations; economic difficulties and political unpopularity; threats from Khrushchev to Berlin and Cuba; the Profumo case; and finally his own sudden illness and resignation.
This week he describes the background to de Gaulle's veto; his 1962 Cabinet changes which came to be known as 'the night of the long knives'; the Cuba crisis when the third world war seemed imminent; his close friendship with President Kennedy; and the successful signing of the Test Ban Treaty.

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.
