: War School

A four-part series about the making of tomorrow's top commanders. Michael Cockerell reports on the lives of young officers at the Army Staff College, Camberley. 3: A Different Form of Death
' People used to think that the next war would be just one bloody great bang and that would be the end of it - but it won't.'
Thinking the unthinkable - nuclear war - is part of life at the Staff College. The officers learn what it would be like to fight and command in the face of nuclear and chemical weapons.
The Camberley Commandant, General Sir Frank Kitson , has helped devise new tactics for the British army against a Soviet invasion of the West. 'The Communist aim is world domination,' says one student. And they learn at first hand about the other enemy, closer to home, that they are told increasingly threatens the British way of life-the IRA. The officers produce their ideas for solving the Irish problem,

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.
