: 1945: The Year That Shaped Our World: Tuesday's Documentary

1945 was a crucial year for Britain and the World.
The war ended but left behind difficulties and problems without parallel. Central Europe was in ruins, peopled by a generation of displaced persons; Britain was tired, ready for change, political and social; the Iron Curtain was ready to be lowered. Civil war was starting in Greece. While on the sidelines Russia and America were ready to take advantage of every opportunity that might be offered.

Yet it was a year of hope. An election and a chance to change Britain. The return to civilian enjoyments: Ascot, motor car racing, sport, the first time for five years without the threat of bombs. Entertainment by big established stars like Bing Crosby and Bob Hope; the discovery of new ones like Frank Sinatra.
All these events are reflected by library film of the time.
Written and spoken by WILLIAM HARDCASTLE
Dubbing mixer DAVE simpson
Film editor RON FREEMAN
Producer THERESE DENNY
Frank Sinatra is the subject of Celebration: Wednesday at 7.30 pm R4.

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.
