Son of the Morning Star


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A sweeping two-part American drama which tells the story of General George Armstrong
Custer and the turbulent times of the Plains Indian War.
Starring Gary Cole Rosanna Arquette
1866: the Seventh Cavalry is formed, under the leadership of General Custer, to protect the westward-moving white settlers from hostile Indians. Over the next ten years Custer establishes his own legend as a peerless Indian fighter, despite a volatile temperament and a streak of cruelty. During the same period, government laws lead to a growing resentment among the Indians, embodied in a fiery young warrior called Crazy Horse. As their bitterness erupts into violence, it is the controversial Custer who is asked to resolve the issue - once and for all. Part two is tomorrow at 9.30pm.

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.

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.
