(The Shadow Warrior)
The award-winning film by AKIRA KUROSAWA starring Tatsuya Nakadal
'Swift as the wind, silent as the forest, fierce as the fire, immovable as the mountain' is the motto emblazoned on the banners of Shingen, legendary warlord of the Takeda Clan. But Shingen is mortal and as he Ides dying from battle wounds, he orders his Clan to keep Ms death secret for three years. Winner of the 1980 Cannes Golden Palm, this epic drama of feudal conflict in 16th-century Japan is based on a powerful warlord who used a ' kagemusha ' or double to take his place in battle.

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.
