: Reputations: Ike and Monty - Generals at War

General Dwight D Eisenhower and Field-Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery may have been comrades-in-arms but private correspondence reveals a bitter conflict between them.
Ike and Monty - Generals at War is the first of four biographical documentaries investigating the image of five of this century's most powerful figures.
Ratherthan rely on people's sometimes shaky memories, this programme uses only archive film and documentation (letters, messages, telegrams and speeches) to examine and dramatise the extraordinary relationship between two of the giants of the Second World War. It explores how their personalities influenced their soldiering and, ultimately, the course of the war, while historians reflect that in many ways their lives can be seen as a metaphor for the changing relationship between Britain and the USA. With contributions from Stephen Ambrose, Norman Gelb, Nigel Hamilton and Lord Chalfont.
Other programmes in the series re-evaluate the public images of such diverse characters as Dr Albert Schweitzer who, in 1913, gave up everything to build and run a hospital in the African jungle, the ruthless and wealthy businessman
Aristotle Onassis and Lavrenti Beria, Stalin's notorious henchman.

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.
