: The Troubleshooters: The Wrecking of the Sierra Nevada

by Michael Winder
[Starring] Robert Hardy, Geoffrey Keen, Ray Barrett, Philip Latham, Isobel Black, Deborah Stanford
Guest star, Anton Diffring

As Britain reeled under the recent gales Ray Barrett, director Alan Gibson and his crew were anxiously watching the shipping forecasts. They were due to sail aboard an oil tanker to film for tonight's episode. In the event, the gale at sea was a mere force eight. Cold and tough - but not unsuitable. For the action features an approaching hurricane.
It centres around the efforts to save a giant Mogul tanker aground off Florida with a cargo of 100,000 tons of crude oil. Thornton, acting for Stead, wants to bomb the ship, but Stewart has his own reasons for refusing. And he is backed by a swashbuckling salvage expert, played by Anton Diffring, who is seen for once in a sympathetic role through a truly explosive situation.

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.

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.
