: Churchill

The second in a four-part series, in 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.
To Conquer or to Die. In May 1940 when he became Prime
Minister, Churchill told the British people that he could only offer them "Blood, toil, tears and sweat". This second film describes how and why
Churchill became the symbol of Britain's struggle for survival through the crises of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and the Blitz until the first great victory at Alamein. Churchill's first stormy meeting with Stalin in the Kremlin is described by three of those present including Stalin's interpreter Valentin Berezkhov. Churchill's daughter Lady Soames and his staff recall the pressures on him and provide insight into the close, supportive but sometimes argumentative role played by his wife Clementine. Producer Jeremy Bennett ● STEREO

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.
