: Unconditional Surrender

Two programmes by RAYMOND BARKER
1: What really happenedt
In January 1943 President Roosevelt announced at Casablanca that the Allies would not be satisfied with anything short of unconditional surrender from the Axis Powers. Had FDR. discussed this formula with his American colleagues and with his allies? Was Churchill as surprised by the formula as he was later to suggest? What were the immediate - and long-term - effectn of the policy?
Mr Barker , who is Lecturer in Politics at the University of Bradford, examines these questions with the help of interviews he has made with, among others, HALF DAHRENDORF, LOUIS HALLE, W. AVERELL HARRIMAN , STANLEY HOFFMANN , ERNEST MAY, PAUL H. NITZE , ANATOL RAPOPORT , and DAVID RIESMAN
Produced bv DANIEL SNOWMAN (To be repeated on 23 December. The American Cure-all: Thursday, 8.25 pm)

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

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.
