The Late Film: The Sandpiper


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.
Elizabeth Taylor Richard Burton Eva Marie Saint with Charles Bronson Robert Webber
Dr Edward Hewitt is a respected principal of a small private school, but his passionate affair with the beautiful and unconventional Laura Reynolds threatens to destroy his career - and his marriage.
The wild and colourful beauty of the Big Sur region of California forms a dramatic background to this unashamedly romantic drama, one of several films the Burtons made together during the 60s, which features one of the movies' most haunting theme songs.

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.
