: LOOK

at
Guacharo
Bird of Eternal
Darkness with PETER
SCOTT
Presented for television by Robina Gyle -Thompson
Series producer. JEFFERY Boswall from the South and West
A bird that never sees the light of day but lives in stygian caverns and emerges only at night to fly silently through tropical American jungles; a bird that, like the bat, uses echo-location to find its way around the eaves, though, unlike the bat, the sounds it emits are audible to humans ...
It all seems a bit far-fetched, but such a bird does exist-perhaps the most extraordinary bird in the world. Only recently have the full facts emerged, and much credit goes to the young Swedish wildlife photographer, Jan Lindblad , who spent months under conditions of great hardship in the Trinidad jungles making tonight's programme-the first in a new series.
He has adapted and used infra-red techniques to bring back astonishing film, shot in pitch darkness.
The great naturalist and explorer, von Humboldt, first found the bird almost 170 years ago in Venezuela. It was surrounded by superstition and fear — Guacharo, ' the one who cries and mourns.'
The local Indians were afraid to go to the cavern because of the strange echoing cries. They believed it was the home of their ancestors' spirits, and that if they entered they too would die.
Missionaries had no such qualms-the Guacharo's young get immensely fat and these were slaughtered in thousands for boiling down into oil for lamps and cooking. It was because of this that von Humboldt gave the bird the more prosaic name of oilbird. Now the oilbird, secretive, romantic, harmless, and fantastic, is struggling to survive.

The saint of the title is one Ted Crowther , who lives in a fairly new block of flats known as Concrete Canyon. He has earned his title because of his good works on behalf of the tenants.
He is also a very good Crown
Green bowler, well-known in the area for his dexterity with wood and jack.
A little boy, Billy Darby , goes missing from the flats because he believes that he is going to lose his pet hamster, as the Council won'allow pets to be kept in Concrete Canyon. Crowther, naturally, is right there with the Newtown police to help look for Billy. But Crowther also runs a savings club for the tenants, and this attracts the interest of Det.-Insp. Todd ...

criminal investigator extraordinary
A film series starring
RAYMOND BURR as Robert Ironside with DON GALLOWAY as Det.-Sgt.
Brown BARBARA ANDERSON as Officer Eve Whitfield
DON MITCHELL as Mark Sanger with guest stars,
James Farentino
Susan Saint James
Something for Nothing
Ironside tries to find just one witness courageous enough to testify against a ruthless moneylender who controls a powerful crime ring.
Don's dream came true
Don Galloway always wanted to be an actor. ' When I was a little kid I wanted to be an actor so badly I could hardly believe it would happen. It still hits me once in a while. I say, " What are you doing? " and I realise I'm doing what I want to do.'
Galloway was born in Brooksville, Kentucky. He went to university there and studied drama.
After working as a soda-pop delivery van driver and as a page at NBC in New York, he landed his first acting job, a running part in a daytime TV serial.
' I went to a reading at 5.30 p.m. one day,' he said. ' I'd been knocking on doors all day and I was tired. There were forty others waiting who looked exactly like me. I read just to get it over with -and got the job.' Then four years ago he went to Hollywood and worked pretty steadily until A Man Called Ironside came up.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
