Taken prisoner in Indo-China in 1954, Lt-Col Raspeguy and the survivors of the French paratroop regiment he commands are repatriated after the armistice-only to find that the regiment has been disbanded and Raspeguy relieved of all command. But when hostilities break out in Algeria, he finds himself and his unorthodox military methods once more in demand.
Anthony Quinn heads a strong international cast in this action-packed drama set in North Africa.

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.
