Peter Ustinov reads extracts from his best-selling autobiography abridged by JACK SINGLETON
7: Spartacus" was a film with an extraordinary rich mixture, as full of intrigue as a Balkan government in the good old days. Kirk Douglas was the producer as well as the leader of the slave uprising in ancient Rome. Laurence Olivier, Charles Laughton , Tony Curtis , Jean Simmons and myself discovered that none of our scripts were the same. Since Olivier had arrived a week before the majority of us, he had already inspired yet another version of the script in which his role had somewhat grown in importance.

All we drummed into our men about magnanimity seemed to cut across their being asked to hand over unarmed prisoners who might then be massacred out of hand. (MAJOR-GEN BREDIN, London-Irish Rifles)
In 1945, more than two million Soviet and former Russian citizens were forcibly repatriated to the USSR by the British and American authorities. Some had served the Germans because of their hatred of Stalin and his government. In this programme, based on his book of the same name, Nicholas Bethell tells the story of one such group of Cossacks who were driven out of Austria at bayonet point back to Russian labour camps or firing squads.

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.
