Second World War drama starring

Sam Peckinpah 's uncompromising picture of waron the Eastern Front in 1943. The German army is engaged in a bloody and doomed struggle against the Russian enemy. Two very different men are brought together in the fray: Steiner, a cynical sergeant short on discipline but long on medals, his hands sullied by the dirty job of fighting, and Captain Stransky, obsessed with defunct values of glory, determined to win the Iron Cross, whateverthe cost.
(1977) * FILM REVIEWS pages 39-44

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.
