: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE THIRD REICH

A documentary in three parts from the book by WILLIAM SHIRER
PART 3: Gotterdammerung
The Twilight of the Gods-the evil gods of National Socialism. Encouraged by his virtual walk-over in the West, Hitler invaded Russia. At home, and in the countries he had seized, he put into action his ' final solution ' for the Jews and other ' subhumans.' But Russia swallowed his armies as it had swallowed Napoleon's; the Americans entered the war; Stalingrad and Alamein marked the turning point. D-day and the officers' plot, the remorseless squeeze from East and West, and finally a charred corpse in a blazing Berlin. After that, the reckoning-the Nuremberg trials.
A WOLPER-METROMEDIA production

: MADE IN BRITAIN

Products-ideas-techniques
The export drive: spotlight on the men, the methods, the markets that are earning Britain's living abroad.
For nearly a decade Britain's road hauliers have been able to carry our exports across the continent without repeated customs inspections at borders en route. The system, T.I.R.-Transports Internationales Routiers—is being used by an increasing number of freight carriers, often with British-made trailers-themselves a valued export commodity.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
