: Into the Storm

Absorbing drama starring Brendan Gleeson, a follow-up to The Gathering Storm, depicting Winston Churchill's rise to power and his determination to steer the country to victory in the Second World War.
His stubborn, defiant nature made him a formidable wartime leader, but these very same traits have caused him to lose touch with the British people. As Churchill awaits the results of the 1945 general election, he reflects on the pivotal events of the war, and the consequences for his wife Clementine, forced to lead a life in the shadows while he took centre stage.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
