3: 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. Yet cracks in this philosophical monolith soon appeared, and with Khruschev's denunciation of Stalin, 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. Michael Charlton traces the story of the intellectual defection from Communism, with contributions from those in Eastern Europe who have been foremost in mounting the critique: MILOVAN DJILAS

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
