: A Touch of Churchill, a Touch of Hitler The Life of Cecil Rhodes

Cecil Rhodes , Anglican vicar's son from Bishop's Stortford, went out to South Africa at the age of 17; he had weak lungs and it was thought that the long sea journey would do him good. He died 32 years later, an empire builder and a multi-millionaire with several hundred thousand square miles of the earth's surface in his own name.
Kenneth Griffith , best known as an actor, has a passionate interest in the old British Empire and especially Britain's involvement in Southern Africa. Indeed, his house in Canonbury bulges with a million letters and postcards about the military aspect of the Empire. This film was his conception and in it he narrates dramatically the story of Rhodes's influence in Africa.
It is a story which will shock many people who still regard Cecil Rhodes as a man of great moral fibre who sought, for the highest principles, to spread Britain's ' sphere of influence.'

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.
