: The Triumph of the West

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 5: East of Europe
Is Russia a part of the West? When the Moors were driven out of Christendom in the 15th century the boundaries of European civilisation in the West were clearly defined - by the sea. But in the East the plains roll away into Asia and there are few natural frontiers.
John Roberts looks beyond Cold War definitions as he considers how Byzantines, Bulgars, Ottoman Turks,
Slavs and Mongols all made their mark on Europe in the East and contributed to the Russian enigma. Russia would develop an autocracy with its roots in Byzantium and adopt a political philosophy with its origins in the European Enlightenment and Jewish philosophy;
Marxism. 'In Europe we are Asiatics,' wrote Dostoevsky, 'but in Asia we are
Europeans.'

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.
