Yul Brynner
Trevor Howard with Harry Andrews Andrew Keir
Charlotte Rampling
Cast characteristically in a powerful and aggressive role, the late Yul Brynner portrays Sultan, a troublesome yet idealistic Indian rebel confronted violently by the imperialism of the British Raj. His values and attitudes are admired by Major Freddy Young, the police officer hoping to bring the bandit to justice, but, for two men of honour, ideals and duty are not easily reconciled....
Screenplay by PETER YELDHAM
Based on a story by RANVEER SINGH Produced and directed by KEN ANNAKIN

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.
