A Will to Endure by REARDEN CONNER
Read by Michael Duffy
' All his life he had been a strong man, rich in health, hating illness and a little contemptuous of it. He had worked out of doors in all weathers without as much as an ache or pain. When he was in his 70th year, some time after his wife's death, the first shaft of real pain struck at him ... " Ah, the devil take it! he muttered, " must be getting an old man ".'
Producer JUDITH ELLIOTT BBC Northern Ireland
'The history of modern Europe might have been very different if, in the 30s, Germany's Ambassador to London had not been a vainglorious clown called Joachim von Ribbentrop, and if Britain had not sent to Berlin a well-intentioned simpleton called Nevile Henderson.'
James Cameron tells the story of two men who, by struggling to serve wholly different but equally blinkered masters, helped to cause the Second World War.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
