: The Blast of War 1939-45

The Rt. Hon. Harold Macmillan in conversation with Ian Trethowan.

Winston Churchill
"You had to hold on, or he didn't think you were any good."

President Roosevelt
"He also had this curious idea, which many statesmen are apt to think, that other statesmen will yield to their charm."

General Eisenhower
"I don't think he was what is called by this awful word a very 'clever' man, if by that you mean great agility for taking every small point and worrying about it. But he had vision, he had decision."

General De Gaulle
"De Gaulle was already seized not so much with the military problems, in which he could only play a small part, but with defending the integrity, the strength, the pride of France."

Field-Marshal Alexander
"I think he's the best General that we've had since Marlborough."

Harold Macmillan, Prime Minister, 1957-1963 talks about the Second World War and his encounters with Churchill, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, De Gaulle, and Alexander -
in London, North Africa, Italy, and Greece.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
