: Sir CHARLES GRANT ROBERTSON, Principal of Birmingham University. ' Short Lives of Great Men—III, the Earl of Chatham.' Relayed from Birmingham

THE first William Pitt , the great
Earl of Chatham, suffered from having a son of his own name, who was as great a Peace Minister as his father was a War Minister. William Pitt the younger basked, too, in the glory of the struggle against Napo. leon. -In comparison, the triumphs of Chatham in the Seven Years War seem dim and almost medisoval. Yet it was under Chatham's War Ministry that Clive won Plassey and Wolfe took Quebec, founding the British Empire in India and Canada in the process of helping Frederick the Great against Franco and Austria in Europe.

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.
