: A Week with Svetlana

Fifteen years ago, on 6 March 1967, the only daughter of Josef Stalin , Svetlana Alliluyeva , walked into the American Embassy in Delhi. It was one of the most dramatic defections from the Soviet Union ever. She has lived in the USA ever since. Last summer she spent a week in Sussex at the home of Malcolm Muggeridge , with whom she has corresponded for over ten years.
Svetlana is now 56 years old and has two grown-up children in Russia with whom she is unable to communicate. She is a Christian, secretly baptised while still living in Moscow.
During her stay she talked with Muggeridge about the extent to which religious faith persists within the Soviet Union, about her upbringing in the Kremlin, her mother's suicide, her own increasingly difficult relationship with her father, and about her hopes and fears for the future. FUm cameraman JOHN MCGLASHAN Sound recordist RICHARD BOULTER

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.
