: Soldiers

A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Tank
Tanks are the shock arm of modern warfare. Ever since their first appearance on the devastated battlefields of Europe in World War I, they have played an increasingly important role in battle. A
British invention, the success and failure of tanks has depended on the principles of mobility, protection and firepower. In World War n, the German Panther and Tiger, the American Sherman and the Russian T-34 tried different ways of achieving this balance, which today is reflected in the Israeli
Merkava and the British
Challenger. The tank was a revolutionary weapon, and for the tank soldier, life in its confined world, the atmosphere of conflict and destruction, was very different to anything experienced before. Wntten by JOHN KEEGAN Film editor DENISE PERRIN Producer ROBERT TONER Series producer JOHN GAU

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.
