: Dean Acheson

talking with Kenneth Harris

Dean Acheson - the man responsible for the shaping of American foreign policy in the critical years following the last war. In 1941 he gave up a successful law practice to join the State Department in the Roosevelt Administration. President Truman made him Secretary of State in 1949 and he faced the most testing time of his career.
What was the mood of America in the 1940s? Would the USA have come into the war but for the bombing of Pearl Harbour? What happened when Prime Minister Attlee flew to Washington to stop the use of the atomic bomb in Korea? Did the USA misjudge completely the possibilities of co-operation with the Russians at the end of World War Two? How did he react to the anti-communist witch-hunting of the McCarthy era?
Dean Acheson talks frankly to Kenneth Harris about his term of office as Secretary of State.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
