The Best of Montreux: Sandy, The Noble-Minded Cowboy


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.
Written by Eman Kanera and Frantisek Marvan.
A spoof Western from Czechoslovakia that won the prize for comedy at this year's Montreux Festival.
Directed by Eman Kanera for Czechoslovak Television

It is a hot day in the old West, where pistol shots ring out more often than church bells. Rancher Andrews lives with his daughter Daisy. When he is seized by gambling fever and gambles away her dowry at the saloon it is only the beginning... Sandy-The Noble-Minded Cowboy brings commercials to BBC-tv, but you are not likely to find in any shop the Supersquirt Fire Extinguisher whose virtues an attractive young lady extols when the sheriff blows up his office by sneezing gunpowder into an oil lamp while he sleeps.

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.
