Fernando Lamas
Arlene Dahl
Gilbert Roland
In his search for a gem to cap the crown of France,
Jean Tavernier rescues and falls in love with the beautiful
Queen Maya, reluctant bride of the Great Mogul.
Jean bargains the secret of hand grenades for a fabulous blue diamond owned by the Mogul, but the power-crazed ruler's treachery results in a furious climactic duel in which two glittering prizes are at stake - the fabulous jewel and the beautiful Maya. Fernando Lamas stars as the dashing soldier of fortune in this colourful tale of passion and daring set in 17th-century India.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
