: The Commanders

A new documentary in this series involving men of different nations who rose to the challenge of high command in the Far East. This week: Bill Slim
Field-Marshal, British Army
He was a grammar-school boy in an era when the army drew its leaders from a few famous public schools. He came to command in Burma, 1942. He faced defeat and some of the worst campaigning country of the Second World War. His troops were in low morale and called themselves ' the forgotten army.'
A man of modesty and humour, he gained to a unique degree their trust and affection and led them through one of the most brilliantly successful campaigns of the war-the reconquest of Burma in 1944-45. Those taking part:
Philip C. Pratt , James Alford Colonel Ralph Barnwell Lt Col Ronald Gibbs
General Sir Philip Christison Maj Gen H. L' Taffy ' Davies General Sir Ouvry Roberts Admiral of the Fleet
The Earl Mountbatten of Burma Nigel Bruce
Lt Col Esther Somerville Maj Gen Maxwell Dyer
Lt Gen Sir Geoffrey Evans
Air Vice Marshal Stanley Vincent Charles Jenkins
Written by CORRELLI BARNETT Narrated by FRANK GILLARD Quotations spoken by JOHN MOFFATT

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.
