Looking Back to the Future
The fatal resentments which Stalin had kindled in the countries of Eastern Europe have flared into a succession of crises of which Poland is the most significant, it only the most recent.
As the appeal of ideology faded. Communist leaders wooed their publics with western-style promises of improved living standards, but for the 80s, they can only promise tightened belts.
In the last programme of the series,
Michael Charlton argues that economic malaise and political stagnation are now generating forces in Eastern Europe which in the past have led to two world wars. Do the states of Eastern Europe have the capacity to make the Soviet imperium unmanageable unless the Russians are willing to contemplate changes which they have always refused in the past? Would some new arrangement for Europe offer more stability than the present division?

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.
