The David Lean Film:Lawrence of Arabia


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.
Lawrence, an idealistic young army lieutenant in Cairo, is given his chance for special duty by joining the Arab revolt against the Turkish occupation. Winning the confidence of Prince Feisal, Lawrence succeeds in the impossible - leading an army across the desert to take Aqaba. While Lawrence seems invincible in the field, self-doubt begins to set in. David Lean 's epic production, shot on spectacular desert locations, won seven
Academy Awards including the award for Best Picture.

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.
