A major appraisal of what
Russians think of the West, as the USSR holds its own commemoration of the end of the Second World War. The words of the programme title are used in a Russian toast, often drunk in front of foreigners. These words recall the devastating impact of the War on the Soviet Union, which suffered 20 million dead.
Do the Russians believe the toast can have any meaning in these days of nuclear confrontation?
Gordon Clough is in Russia to talk to ordinary people about the impact of war on their lives and to observe the elaborate preparations for the 40th anniversary of the end of what they call the 'Great Patriotic War'.
And. as the Geneva talks on arms control resume, Professor John Erickson , Britain's foremost authority on the Soviet Union, assesses the motives behind Russian hopes for a revival of the old wartime co-operation between East and West.

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.
