An anthology of the Spanish Civil War
Compiled with a commentary by J. M. COHEN
In July 1936, when the Generals' revolt broke out, very few writers, intellectuals, and politicians outside Spain were interested in the country's affairs. Spanish writers themselves remained aloof from actuality. Within a few weeks the intellectual world was committed, principally on the side of the Republic. This programme pursues the course of the war as reflected in the writings in prose and verse of those whose island-privacy was broken by the bitter struggle which ended twenty-five years ago.

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.
