The Late Film: Billy Two Hats


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.
Gregory Peck Desi Arnaz Jr
Half-Indian, Billy Two Hats, and Deans, an ageing, fellow outlaw, are on the run after a bank robbery. Their pursuer. Sheriff Gifford, is motivated not only by political ambition but by hatred of the Indian.
His vicious incomprehension of the bond between the two men counterpoints the action as the outlaws struggle for a freedom impossible in an intolerant society. This tense Western interweaves an exciting chase story with a study of racial prejudice.
Screenplay by ALAN SHARP
Directed by TED KOTCHEFF

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.
