: The British Army and the British Soldier

A series of 12 programmes presented by Rene Cutforth
4: We could stay here forever And that, in the prophetic words of their commander General Colley, is what most of the soldiers did who fought at Majuba Hill, in the First South African War of 1880-1, the last redcoat campaign, and the last in which colours were carried in action.
Was the Boer commander right when he said:
What did you expect, fighting on a Sunday?
Or was Sir Ian Hamilton nearer the mark when he said:
A commander who undertakes a dangerous feat of arms with detachments instead of units is asking for trouble.
The real explanation of the defeats at Majuba and at Isandhlwana in 1879 is much longer and more involved.

In his report to Congress this spring the United States Secretary of Defense, James R. Schlesinger. spelt out some of the basic changes in American nuclear strategy following the first Strategic Arms Limitation
Talks and the continuing Soviet arms buildup. What are the implications for Europe of this new thinking? How far has it progressed? What changes can we expect in the near future?

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.
