Men of Action: Tobruk


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 Rock Hudson, George Peppard, Nigel Green, Guy Stockwell
A prisoner of the Vichy French in World War II, Major Donald Craig of the British North African Army is surprised to find himself kidnapped by German frogmen. His surprise turns to amazement when his kidnappers reveal themselves as members of the Special Identification Group, German Jews working with the allies. Craig soon learns the reason for his rescue: he is to lead an operation to cut off enemy supply lines by blowing up fuel bunkers at Tobruk.

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.
