The centuries will burn rich loads
With which we groaned,

: The Price of Victory

A series of eight documentary programmes written and presented by Michael Charlton which examines what have been called the ' missed opportunities ' of Britain's European diplomacy between the final years of the Second World War and de Gaulle's veto of the United Kingdom's first bid to join the EEC.
3:Losing the InitiativeHaving tried without success to get Britain to agree common action with France in 1949, the ' father of Europe ' Jean Monnet intensified his designs with West
Germany. The result was the Schuman Plan for pooling coal and steel production which won critical backing from the United States. How exactly the British
Cabinet came to take the decision to remain aloof is recalled by LORD
GORDON-WALKER and THE
RT HON SIR HAROLD WILSON , mp. Other contributions include GEORGE BALL , LUKE BATTLE,
SIR RODERICK BARCLAY , MICHAEL CULLIS , THE RT HON DENIS HEALEY , MP, ETIENNE HIRSCH , SIR
CON O'NEILL , LORD PLOWDEN, LORD ROBERTHALL, LORD
SHERFIELD and SIR DUNCAN WILSON and recordings from the BBC Sound Archives. Producer

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.
