8: The Story of Roald Amundsen and his incredible journey to the South Pole in 1911 Written by IAN RODGER
Introduced and narrated by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London Shock and disbelief rebounded through Britain at the news that Scott of the Antarctic had an unexpected rival. At the last moment Roald Amundsen , a tough and moody Norwegian, had decided to race the British expedition to the South Pole. For Scott the competition was to end in tragedy and death. It was Amundsen, single-minded to the point of obsession, who succeeded and lived.
The viewer could feel he was watching the real thing. (DAILY TELEGRAPH) An impressive record. (GUARDIAN) Superbly acted (EVENING NEWS) Director DAVID COBHAM

: The War Lords: Churchill

The third in a series of six programmes in which A.J.P. Taylor talks about the great leaders of the Second World War. They were the War Lords - men of incalculable power who dominated both the military and civil affairs of their countries.

"I have only one aim in life,' said Churchill, "that is to defeat Hitler - and that makes things very simple for me."

A.J.P. Taylor tells the story of Winston Churchill, and analyses his character and achievements. He is controversially outspoken about some of Churchill's failings - "I suppose his greatest mistake was his refusal to take the dangers in the Far East seriously. He said 'the little yellow men will never dare to challenge the might of the British Empire'". A.J.P. Taylor is equally frank in his assessments of Churchill's heroic successes - "there have been two great war heroes in our history, Nelson and Wellington, both in their different ways the saviours of their country. Churchill was added unto them."

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.
