This week marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the man who - second to Lenin among the Bolsheviks - actually organised the October Revolution of 1917, created the Red Army which saved the Communist state from extinction in 1919-20, and produced a body of work providing the theoretical basis of a Marxist alternative to Stalinism. Arguably one of the most important shapers of our century. Trotsky was also a consummate autobiographer, and this programme draws from his own words the story of his dynamic and ultimately tragic life. with and Others in the cast: MICHAEL DERRINGTON

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.
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.
