The Eclipse of Ideology Among the Communists who came to power in Eastern Europe after the war were men who had kept the Marxist-Leninist faith through the purges of the 30s, the Hitler-Stalin Pact and the deification of Stalin himself. Their belief in a total solution to the evils of the world enabled them to dismiss such events as necessities. Yet cracks in this philosophical monolith soon appeared, and with Khrushchev's denunciation of Stalin the retreat from Ideological certainty became a stampede.
Under the impact of the explosions in Poland and Hungary in 1956, then of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the critics from within the party ranks came to perceive Communist ideology as irrelevant. In the third of four programmes,
Michael Charlton traces the story of the Intellectual defection from
Communism, the eclipse of ideology, with contributions from those In Eastern Europe who have been foremost In mounting the critique: Milovan DJilas

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.
