Omnibus John Ford


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.
First of a two-part profile of the great American film director, accompanying a BBCtv season of his movies.
"Making films is a piece of pie. It's a nice easy way of making a living." John Ford made over 100 films and won more
Academy Awards than any other director. Born in America, of Irish parents, his work is often characterised by a love of wide open spaces such as Monument Valley in Arizona and a vivid evocation of the epic spirit that helped build
America. In part one, Omnibus traces this remarkable career which began in the silent movie era with films like The Iron
Horse through classics such as Stagecoach and The Grapes of Wrath, to his extraordinary
Second World War documentary Battle of Midway. Presented by British film director and Ford expert Lindsay Anderson , with contributions from
John Wayne , Henry Fonda , Maureen O'Hara and Roddy McDowall. Producer Andrew Eaton
Series editor Andrew Snell
(Part 2 next week. John Ford 's film She Wore a Yellow Ribbon follows at 11.1 5pm) 0 TELETEXT SUBTITLES: page 888

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.
