: THE HIGH CHAPARRAL

... is the bid of a family seeking roots in the newly won West
... . is the threat to the new settlers from Mexicans and Indians
... and spells adventure in the Arizona territory of 1870 Surtee
In yet another attempt to maintain peace in the territory John establishes an Apache reservation. A government agent, Captain Surtee, is appointed to control it, but he is surprisingly ineffectual, and his lack of success brings trouble rather than peace. Big John suspects Surtee of being involved in the theft of government cattle, and he takes the law into his own hands and fires Surtee who has been treating the hungry reservation Indians harshly.

: YESTERDAY'S WITNESS

A series which explores living memory
I HAVE FLOWN
AND IT'S MARVELLOUS
In 1903 the aeroplane raised itself off the ground for the first time and stayed aloft for twelve glorious seconds. A new age had begun.
In tonight's film pioneer aviators recall their first experiences of powered flight.
The only way to learn to fly was to go and teach yourself.... Most of us did our first flight involun. tarily. One looked over the side and found the ground had gone. Well, there you were, you were in the air and you'd got to do something about it!
Taking part:
Sir Richard Atcherley Sir Alan Cobham
Charles Dollfus
E. C. Gordon England Cecil Pashley
Sir Thomas Sopwith
C. H. Watkins
Produced by STEPHEN PEET Directed by IAN KEILL

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
