9.0 Stalin
Joseph Stalin died 20 years ago this March. More than any other political figure of our century he changed the course of history.

While he lived and ever since he died his actions and his personality have provoked the most contradictory opinions. Was he 'the creator of modern Russia,' 'the greatest criminal in history' - or both? His achievements are indisputable; the price paid in human terms almost immeasurable.
What are the ends that could justify such violent means? What went on in the mind of the despot who killed off almost 20 million of his countrymen? What is the nature, the construction, the essence of a Communist regime - and what is it like living under it?
From factual documentary material and the more subjective voices of poets and writers, this programme pieces together the story of Stalin's life, the story of the gigantic system which he created - or which created him? with Michael Gough as the Author
Sebastian Shaw , Lee Montague Peter Copley as Narrators
and Jill Balcon as Anna Akhmatova
Based on a book by GEORGE PALOCZI-HORVATH Film editor PETER WEST

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.
