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.
starring Glenn Ford Shirley MacLaine with Leslie Nielsen Mickey Shaughnessy Edgar Buchanan
In the West no more violent hatreds existed than those between cattlemen and sheepmen. In this story Jason Sweet brings a flock of sheep into cattle country - and makes the cowmen like it! Glenn Ford as Jason doesn' believe in meeting trouble half way either - he goes out and finds it. His first move is to pick a fight with the toughest guy in town.

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.
