: THE SPINNERS

TONY DAVIS , MICK GROVES
CLIFF HALL, HUGHIE JONES
The folk group which caters for all sorts and conditions of folk once more offers a well-mixed selection of ballads, sea shanties, calypsos-in fact every kind of folk song, ancient and modern. Eleanor Leith will be joining the quartet as guest artist for the occasion, and there will of course be that biggest-of-all backing group-the 400-strong theatre audience of lusty singers. If fans at home want to join in, there's positively no objection. Some of the songs you might care to practise : ' John Peel ', 'Rothesay-O', ', and ' Black and white '.

Tales from the last frontier of the great American West
A film series starring
JAMES DRURY as The Virginian
Six Graves at Cripple Creek
Ryker's hunt for a killer apparently comes to a head when Sheriff Goodbody's guest tells him that his quarry, Charley McMasters , died with five gold-miners in an Indian massacre at Cripple Creek. Suspecting a hoax, Ryker sets out to investigate the grave site and finds himself burdened with an unexpected companion, Lucille Carver. She has come west at the request of her long-absent father to share in his alleged gold strike, only to learn that he too apparently died at Cripple Creek. Gradually Ryker begins to suspect that one of the miners may have survived the massacre.

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.

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.
