Continuing a season of films new to television. Tonight starring Kirk Douglas

Adam and Alex, research workers on Titan, one of the moons of Saturn, have their peaceful existence disturbed by the arrival from earth of 'Captain James' and his cargo of a helper robot. Unknown to them their visitor is in fact Benson, a psychotic killer who has hijacked the spacecraft in which he arrives.
Benson is dangerous enough on his own, but his construction of a huge Demi-God' robot, programmed from his own brain, introduces a terrifying new piece into the game.

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.
