A Gift for Heidi


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.
Heidi is given three beautiful wooden figures as a birthday present by Ernst, the village woodcarver.
It isn't until she gives Peter confidence to sing in the local festival, warms the heart of a haughty city father and helps rescue a honeymooning US Army corporal from an avalanche that she realises the meaning of the statues.
Original screenplay by EUGENE VALE and DAVID DORTORT
Based on characters from the book by JOHANNA SPYRI

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.
