: Churchill

The third in the series of four films, presented by historian Martin Gilbert , of the first complete television biography of Britain's wartime leader
Winston Churchill.
Beginning of the End. This week's episode opens with Churchill's triumphant visit, early in 1943 to the 8th Army in north Africa. He told the troops: "After the war, when a man is asked what he did, it will be quite sufficient to say, 'I marched and fought with the desert army.'" The war years were to see the great orator making some of his finest speeches. His secretary,
Phyllis Forbes , describes how he composed and rehearsed them: "It was like a director of a great orchestra. He would march up and down using a cigar as a baton."
This film also provides a new insight into Churchill's involvement in the key events of the war between 1943 and 1945, including the claim that he wanted to abandon the D-Day plans and instead invade France across the Pyrenees. It reveals the existence of Churchill's "naughty document" - a plan on a scrap of paper proposing the post-war division of Europe with the Russians. But by Yalta in February 1945 he knew that Britain was becoming increasingly powerless. Producer Jeremy Bennett

I Starring Al Pacino
Weld Ivan Travalian is a playwright under pressure. His latest play is about to open, it's not ready, the director is incompetent and there's no lead actress. Add to that the fact that his wife has left him for a guy called Larry Lotzwinkle , and there are five kids to support, and it's easy to see why Ivan's not a happy man.

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.
