: Armistice - and After

A special documentary programme to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of the Great War.
Presented by the distinguished journalist and historian John Grigg.
Sixty years ago this week, the most terrible war the world had known was coming to an end after 52 months of heroism, sacrifice and suffering. At 5.0 am on 11 November 1918 the Armistice was signed and at 11.0 am hostilities ceased-though, tragically, men were being killed up to the very stroke of that llth hour.
This documentary, filmed in France, Belgium and Britain, shows how the Great War reached its dramatic conclusion and how people reacted to the coming of peace. It describes the origin and meaning of those emotionally charged institutions imperishably associated with that war - the cult of the Unknown Warrior, the Flanders Poppy and Armistice Day itself, with its unforgettable two minutes silence. And it asks the question: should we go on remembering?

Film editor LES NEWMAN Produced by MALCOLM BROWN

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.
