: Churchill

The last 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.
Never Despair. This final film in the series covers the great statesman's life after the war until his death in 1965. The
1945 General Election was
Churchill's first major post-war political test - and the Conservatives lost.
Barbara Castle says, "He couldn't realise that the people had been quietly making up their minds that he was a great wartime leader but he wasn't the man to bring the peace." A heckler's shout of "war monger" stuck in people's minds. As Leader of the Opposition, Churchill warned of the Soviet threat and urged Europe to unite - domestic politics often bored him. He turned once more to painting and commented wryly,
"Happy are the painters for they shall not be lonely." He returned to power in 1951, suffered a massive stroke but hung on to office for as long as he could, infuriating his successor Anthony Eden. His oldest surviving secretary provides his epitaph: "I saw an enormous marble plaque and on it the legend 'Remember Winston Churchill'. I thought to myself, 'How could anyone forget him?'" 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.

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.
