: The British Army and the British Soldier

A series of 12 programmes presented by Rene Cutforth
2: Over the Hills and Far Away This second programme tells the story of the redcoats from Charles II's day to their triumphant reappearance in Europe, culminating with Marlborough's great victory over the French at Blenheim in 1704. The regiments are mobs of undisciplined boys; the officers are ignorant, negligent and useless. The cavalry are without cloaks, boots and belts, and almost the entire force want shoes (Ireland: 1690)
Seldom has the British soldier's fortune varied so dramatically as during those years.
Surely never was such a march carried on with more order and regularity and with less fatigue both to man and horse (March to the Danube: 1704) with Other parts JOHN LE MESURIER ARNOLD RIDLEY , JOHN LAURIE
CHILTON Ballad sung by RUTH TONGUE Written and produced by ROBERT CRADOCK in association with the National Army Museum

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.
