: Churchill: Beginning of the End

Another chance to see the television biography of Britain's wartime leader.

The third of four films provides new insight into Churchill's involvement in key events of the war between 1943 and 1945. It illustrates how he interfered in strategy and reveals for the first time the existence of Churchill's "naughty document", a plan on a scrap of paper proposing the post-war division of Europe with the Soviets.
The pressures on Churchill were beginning to tell. By the treaty of Yalta in February 1945 he knew that he had become the junior partner to Roosevelt and Stalin and that Britain was becoming increasingly powerless. Presented by Martin Gilbert.

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.
