As I Remember...


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.
The Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Menzies, K.T., C.H., Q.C., Prime Minister of Australia
1939-41 and 1949-66, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, in conversation with Kenneth Harris.

Suez 1956
"The United Nations in 1956 didn't settle the problems of peace and war in the Middle East, they made another war inevitable."

The Commonwealth
"I'm bound to confess with sorrow that I'm not sorry to be no longer attending a Conference of that kind because all the ancient landmarks have been rooted up... I sometimes think that the winds of change blew a little too suddenly and a little too strongly."

The United Kingdom
"I think you are a little bit inclined here to exaggerate your disabilities, to have lost some faith in yourselves... In this country with its immense history and its immense reservoirs of high intelligence and rich experience, there's no reason to apologise for existence. This country ought to be the moral and intellectual leader of the world for generations to come, but it must not lose faith in itself."

Recorded at the official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, Walmer Castle, Kent.

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.
