A Man Called Ironside: Something for Nothing


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.
Criminal investigator extraordinary
A film series starring Raymond Burr as Robert Ironside
with Don Galloway as Det.-Sgt. Brown, Barbara Anderson as Officer Eve Whitfield, Don Mitchell as Mark Sanger
with guest stars, James Farentino, Susan Saint James.

Ironside tries to find just one witness courageous enough to testify against a ruthless moneylender who controls a powerful crime ring.

Don's dream came true
Don Galloway always wanted to be an actor. 'When I was a little kid I wanted to be an actor so badly I could hardly believe it would happen. It still hits me once in a while. I say, "What are you doing?" and I realise I'm doing what I want to do'.
Galloway was born in Brooksville, Kentucky. He went to university there and studied drama.
After working as a soda-pop delivery van driver and as a page at NBC in New York, he landed his first acting job, a running part in a daytime TV serial.
'I went to a reading at 5.30 p.m. one day', he said. 'I'd been knocking on doors all day and I was tired. There were forty others waiting who looked exactly like me. I read just to get it over with - and got the job'. Then four years ago he went to Hollywood and worked pretty steadily until "A Man Called Ironside" came up.

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.
