: The General's Memoirs Memoires d'Espoir -

The Renewal by Charles de Gaulle
Just before he died General de Gaulle published in Paris the last volume of his memoirs, covering the period 1958-1962. General Andre Beaufre , who was French Army Commander at Suez, talks about de Gaulle, statesman and historian, as he reveals himself during these early years of his return to power in France. The volume is to be published in Britain next spring,
' It is a book of passion: passion for France conceived as a living person, passion for the outstanding mission devoted to General de Gaulle by a decree of Providence, passion for the ideas and principles which were to inspire his action.'

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.
