: Great Britons

The lives behind six legendary names - told by their biographers. 5: David Lloyd George
Written and presented by the distinguished political journalist and historian John Grigg
One contemporary called Lloyd George ' a siren - a goat-footed bard rooted in nothing'. Another called him ' the most dangerous man who ever lived '. Rising from the humble ranks of northern Welsh non-conformity, Lloyd George became the most dynamic and decisive politician of his day. No Chancellor created such hopes or such hatred; no Prime Minister exercised such power. Yet four years after the end of the war which many claimed he had won, he fell from office never to return. JOHN GRIGG , who was formerly Lord Altrincham and who can genuinely claim that Lloyd George knew his father, presents his view that this volatile Welshman was the most effective politician we have ever had in peace or war. It was largely due to him, he believes, that Britain, at a time of supreme world crisis, succumbed neither to military defeat nor to revolution.

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.
