: The Road to War

Eight country-by-country
- accounts ot tne origins of the Second World War written and narrated by Charles Wheeler. 1: Great Britain
Fifty years ago this week, Britain declared war on Germany; eight months later the British army was in retreat from the beaches of Dunkirk. For half a century many have blamed the 'guilty men' - the government of Neville Chamberlain - for Britain's near defeat. But now a different story may be told, the story of a Britain weakened by the First World War, desperate to avoid the carnage of another conflict, and struggling to support an overextended Empire. By the late 1930s,
Neville Chamberlain was caught in a hopeless position, confronting the irrational aggression of Hitler and Mussolini, while trying to preserve the illusion of British imperial power. Film editor CAROL OWENS Executive producer HUGH PURCELL

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.
