2/2. Jeremy Vine marks the 60th anniversary of the start of the Cold War - underscored by Winston Churchill 's Iron Curtain speech in March 1946 - with a look at its impact on popular culture, particularly film, music, television and literature (and vice versa). This concluding part examines the escalation of the Cold War during the Thatcher/Reagan era, with a look at the phenomenal success of the Rambo films and how film-makers once again responded to the threat of a nuclear apocalypse. David Hasselhoff recalls his Berlin Wall performance, and Paul McCartney reflects on the Beatles' impact on the Soviet Union.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
