Breaker Morant


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.
War drama, based on a true story, starring
Edward Woodward, Jack Thompson
At the height of the Boer War three members of the "Bushveldt Carbineers" are court-martialled on charges of murder. The action - designed to make an "example" of the men - is politically motivated and there seems little hope of an acquittal.
Director Bruce Beresford (1979, PG)

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.
