: Churchill

A four-part series in I which historian
Martin Gilbert , who has spent 25 years researching and writing the life of Churchill, presents the first complete television biography of Britain's wartime leader.
Over 100 interviews have been recorded and 53 hours of historic newsreel film acquired from all over the world. Special scenes were shot in the Kremlin and the White House.
Renegade and Turncoat. This first film covers Churchill's early life and political career up to 1940 when he became Prime
Minister. It explains the events which molded the ambitious young politician, led him to change parties twice, and transformed him from political failure in 1915afterthe disaster in the Dardanelles.
His staff recall his marriage to Clementine and life at
Chartwell in the wilderness years. A portrait of Churchill emerges as a maverick politician, and yet the choice of the majority as the only leader who would stand up to Hitter. Parts 2 and 3 follow Churchill through the Second World War and the final programme looks at his career from the end of the war until his death 20 years later. Director Marisa Appugliese
Series producer Jeremy Bennett

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
