1886: During fierce fighting against the Apaches, a US patrol stops at a small mission on the south-west section of the American-Mexican border. There Captain Kaleb finds the settlers massacred and only his wife - savagely tortured - still alive. After mercifully shooting her, he returns to the fort, vowing revenge on the entire Apache nation. A threat which he carries out for two years, until he is called back to the Cavalry. In return for a pardon he is to lead a tough band of trouble-makers. Their task is to obliterate the renegade group, headed by Chief Mangus Durango . ,

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.
