: The Commanders

A documentary series which examines the way that a few unusual men of different nations rose to the challenge of high command. A second chance to see four programmes about World War II in Europe, to be followed by three new programmes on commanders behind the Far East War. 3: Georgi Zhukov, Marshal of the Soviet Union
The commander who survived Stalin's ruthless purges of the 1930s, who dared to argue with the Russian dictator and who finally led the Red Armies to victory against the Nazi aggressor.
The commander whose elemental force of character and iron will proved equal to the savagery and suffering sustained on the Eastern Front during World War II.
Zhukov - the commander who never lost a battle.
Written by Correlli Barnett Narrated by Frank Gillard
Quotations from the writings of Marshal Zhukov read by VICTOR GREGORIY
Producer Harry Hastings Director Maurice Kanareck

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.
