: The British Army and the British Soldier

A series of 12 programmes presented by Rene Cutforth 1: Demure. Psalm-singing Fellows
To bring the New Model Army into being was the first and greatest task. The time was come and England had at last a regular, and as was soon to be seen, a standing army ... clad in the familiar scarlet
This first programme begins the story of the Redcoats in the Civil War: psalm-singing rebels in 1645 and King Charles II's royal army in 1661. At half-past two they were rebel soldiers, by three o'clock they were the King's men

: Analysis

Election 74 - Round 2
For the second time this year the British people are facing a General Election.
After months of minority government the main parties want a clear-cut majority and the smaller parties hope to make their voices even more strongly heard. Whatever happens, the Government will still be faced with the problems of runaway inflation, unsettled industrial relations, and the nature of Britain's role in Europe and the world.
Ian Mclntyre and some of those closely involved in these problems examine what any Government will have to achieve and what it will have to do to achieve it.

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.
