Reggie, Wolves two, Sheffield Wednesday three.'"

: NATO: A Time for Change

2: The Unholy Alliance
NATO is under fire - not from the Soviet Union but from its own members: 16 nations with as many views on how the Alliance should be run and how relations with the Soviet Union should be conducted. The origins of the internal conflicts are not President Reagan's attack on Libya but the events of the 1950s that led to the Alliance basing its strategy on nuclear weapons.
In the second of three progammes investigating the history and future of NATO, Christopher Lee , the BBC's Defence and Foreign Affairs Correspondent, shows, for example, that the decision to base Cruise missiles in Europe was taken for political rather than military reasons. NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Secretary-General Lord
Carrington, and experts from
Europe, the USA, the USSR and Eastern Europe examine the Alliance and its future. Producer BLAIR THOMSON

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
