Morley Safer, C.B.S. News Correspondent, entered China on a tourist visa to compile this report on Communist China in the throes of the Chairman Mao's cultural revolution.
With British cameraman John Peters, Safer visited Peking, Shanghai, Canton, Sian, and Yenan, and rambled through villages, communes, schools, factories, and industrial exhibits. He also examined the influence of Mao's fanatical Red Guard.
(Film made by the Columbia Broadcasting System)

Morley Safer, a Canadian-born journalist, has been with C.B.S. since 1961. One of America's top television reporters, he received the Paul White Memorial Award for 'his courage seeking and reporting the truth as he sees it in Vietnam.'

: Thirteen Against Fate: The Traveller (Le Voyageur de la Toussaint)

Stories by Georges Simenon
Dramatised by Stanley Miller
Starring Kenneth J. Warren, Hywel Bennett

"...As good as any Maigret in its impact and dramatic entertainment. The atmosphere was strong and there was more contrast in the characters than usual. Under the direction of Herbert Wise the gradual progress of the silent hero from ignorance to a full knowledge of his power was excellently drawn by Hywel Bennett". (Glasgow Herald)
"The sense of inhabiting the places in which the stories occur gives a riveting conviction to BBC-1's 'Thirteen Against Fate'. Last night you could almost smell the tang of the Atlantic and taste the apple brandy. Hywel Bennett pulled off the difficult job of conveying honesty without priggishness". (Daily Sketch)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
