: Champion House: A Knife for Your Back

by John Tyler
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

Mietran of Paris has had a contract with Champions of Bradford for nearly twenty years. When the contract has to be renewed, there is a surprise for the Champions. They have a fight on their hands. The situation is not made easier by Joe and Stephen disagreeing about the weapons they should use. A second surprise comes for the Champions when they discover who their opponent is. And all the time, the big combine, Multitex, watches the battle, only too eager to swallow either contestant-or both. Multitex, in fact, is playing the oldest game in the trade.

: Operation Cave Rescue

A documentary by Don Haworth.
The film is a factual record of what happens when the teams of a Cave Rescue Organisation go into action below ground.
Beneath the limestone hills of Yorkshire lie many miles of caves, a maze of passages and pitches, torrents and underground lakes. It is a fascinating world to explore; it can also be a very dangerous one.
Rescue work in the caves is heavy manual labour often done in places so constricted that many people would not be able to move at all. It needs the lifting strength of a docker, the agility of an athlete, the gentleness and patience of a saint. No man has all these qualities. A rescue team collectively must have them.
Narration spoken by Derrick Gilbert

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.
