' Ten years ago, and still cold from the cruel loss of my daughter
Eileen, I held a baby In my arms and watched the eyes open to look at me. In that moment I was granted true vision. In that moment God put out his hand and touched me. I knew then the mercy of my Creator. I had been given Eileen back! '

A Personal Memory of the Korean War
"There never was a war like this for bitterness and savagery... old refugee gentlemen with bundles knocked off with a bullet in the neck... commonplace little villages blasted and burned to ashes. Korea is terribly smashed.
What happens now is in the hands of Washington and Moscow. How they handle this problem involves, not just the future of Korea, but yours and mine..."
(James Cameron, 1951)
The war in Korea began in 1950 and lasted for three years. It ended after a long period of diplomatic stalemate with little gained by either side. James Cameron covered the war for Picture Post. He argues that events in Korea set a horrifying pattern of warfare to be repeated in the tragedies of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

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.
