: Panorama

The Red Army Revolution The mighty Red Army that Lenin created to defend the Motherland is coming home from camps across Eastern
Europe. But it is returning to an uncertain future. From the Baltics to the Caspian Sea, it has become
Gorbachev's army of occupation as nationalist unrest spreads. It faces massive cuts of men and arms, while reformers propose even more far-reaching changes. Jane Corbin reports from
Azerbaijan where Soviet soldiers fought their bloodiest battle so far to reassert the Kremlin's control. She talks to officers and men about their role in the bitter nationalist struggles, and to the political chiefs in Moscow who will decide what kind of future the Soviet Army really has.

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.
