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.
Walt Disney's classic adventure film starring Hayley Mills, Maurice Chevalier, George Sanders and Wilfrid Hyde White
Thrills abound as earthquake, hurricane, fire and flood beset the voyagers in search of Captain Grant. Hayley Mills is perfect as the dauntless daughter in this colourful version of Jules Verne's tale for children of all ages.
'There were more special effects in that film than any other I have done for Disney. I'm looking forward to seeing it again.'
Screenplay by Lowell S. Hawley based on Captain Grant's Children by JULES VERNE

In Search of the Castaways

BBC One London, 25 December 1981 16.10

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.
