Drums Across the River starring Audie Murphy
Lyle Bettger , Walter Brennan
The gold-mining town of Crown City is rapidly becoming a ghost town as the ore runs out, but just across the river in territory reserved for the Ute Indians there are rich veins to be dug.
Audie Murphy , killed in a plane crash last month, was the real-life war hero who became a successful Hollywood star. In Westerns he was occasionally an outlaw but more often the ' good guy' as in tonight's film, the fast-moving story of one man's attempts to avert an Indian war.

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.
