Concluding the two-part profile of the controversial US president. Tonight, evidence that Nixon was involved in sabotaging Vietnam peace talks to further his presidential ambitions.
See Choice.

Reputations 9.00pm BBC2
Astonishingly sensitive information and new interviews have been made available for this absolutely riveting (and scary) second part to the profile of Richard Milhouse Nixon. On his death in 1994, the four surviving US Presidents trooped out to pay tribute to "The Peacemaker", the epitaph chosen for Nixon's headstone. But the truth is somewhat different. He knew ending the war in Vietnam would assure the Presidency for the man who brokered that peace and made sure he was that man. He also entered secret negotiations with the South Vietnamese to dissuade them from attending Lyndon Johnson's peace talks in Paris on the promise of a better deal under a Nixon administration. In other words, he manipulated foreign policy for his own political ends. And it doesn't stop there. (FL)

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.
