starring Robert Redford with Bo Svenson

Superstar Redford plays the daredevil flier Waldo Pepper whose ambition is to outdo the stunts of the legendary German ace Ernst Kessler. This exhilarating, spectacular film vividly evokes the fast-changing world of flying and air circuses in the 20s and includes some of the most breath-taking aerial stunts ever filmed.

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.
