: Monty Returns to El Alamein

Twenty-five years after the first major victory by a British Army in the 1939-45 War, Field-Marshal Viscount Montgomery of Alamein revisits the battlefield.
"The British soldier who said that the desert is miles and miles of damn all - he was just about right.
It was a solid, solid killing match.
Some writers since have rather thought I might have done it some other way. I don't believe you could have done it any other way.
When the battle began, at half past nine, I was asleep in bed.
All Generals are different. There is no sealed pattern for Generals. We are all human. We all make mistakes. What we try to do, of course, is to make the fewest number of mistakes.
The lives of his men are very sacred to any Commander... Generals are meant to win battles... but they are also meant to do it with the least possible expenditure of human life."

with film shot during the battle by both British and German cameramen, and comments from General Seigfried Westphal, German Chief of Staff.

(The programme was made with the co-operation of The Sunday Times)

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.
