Rio Bravo


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.
The classic Western starring
John Wayne Dean Martin Ricky Nelson
When Sheriff
John T. Chance arrests
Joe Burdette for murder, the town of Rio Bravo is blockaded by Joe's powerful rancher brother. Chance has just a handful of supporters to back him; one an ageing cripple, another a reformed drunk. Can the small band hold out until the US Marshal arrives?
Hawks's direction blends tension and comedy with masterly skill and the film gives Wayne and Martin two of their best roles, with memorable support from Walter Brennan.
Produced and directed by HOWARD HAWKS

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.
