: The British Army and the British Soldier

A series of 12 programmes presented bv Rene Cutforth 3: The Scum of the Earth
In this third programme we hear how Wellington has been much misunderstood for using that famous phrase about his Peninsular army of 1808-14. What he actually said was this: Our army is composed of the scum of the earth. People talk of their enlisting from their fine military feeling - all stuff - no such thing. Some of our men enlist from having got bastard children, some for minor offences, many more for drink.
He wasn't far wrong, but he added this sentence which is usually omitted:
It is really wonderful that we should have made them the fine fellows they are. With Other parts JACK CARR. JOHN BULL KERRY FRANCIS , DENIS MCCARTHY PETER PACEY , PETER TUDDENHAM HECTOR ROSS , STEPHEN THORNE PAUL GAYMON. BETTY BASKCOMB Musical direction by CHARLES CHILTON

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.
