It was the British victory at the Battle of El Alamein in November 1942 that inspired one of Churchill's most famous aphorisms: 'This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning'.

In this thrilling historical account, Jonathan Dimbleby describes the political and strategic realities that lay behind the battle, charting the nail-biting months that led to the victory at El Alamein in November 1942.

Michael Gove ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jonathan Dimbleby interviews Shadow Schools Secretary Michael Gove about his claim that the Conservatives are better equipped than Gordon Brown's Labour Government to deliver the best future for children in the state school system. At his party conference last month Gove claimed social justice as his goal and emphasised the scandal of a system where divisions in attainment between rich and poor widen as a child progresses through school. In this programme, Jonathan Dimbleby - one of Britain's toughest and most forensic political interviewers - will explore Gove's vision for a compassionate Conservative education policy and press him on the policies which he claims will deliver change and advance social justice. The Dimbleby Interview will offer one of the first serious tests of Gove's tenure as Shadow Schools Secretary providing a first glimpse of how one of David Cameron's closest allies hopes to transform education under a future Conservative Government

Breaking the ice ( Visual )

It was Winston Churchill who talked about the Russians in terms of riddles, enigmas and mysteries. One of the reasons for that is, of course, that there's been a long period of great secrecy in Russia, which has only just really, in historical terms, come to an end. Then, traveling on a train for a reporter would have been a complete nightmare: passes, permits, minders, people viewing you with a lot of suspicion. And the difference between then and now is, is quite extraordinary
