Alan Whicker pursues the BANDITS OF SARDINIA
Graziano's having a difficult time, at the moment....
In the Barbagia — least-known mountains of Europe-where it's said there's a robbery, a kidnapping, or a murder every day, Alan Whicker follows the course of a bloody vendetta that has claimed ten victims so far..... He also discovers how and why simple shepherds suddenly turn bandit-men on the run who only leave the peaks to kidnap and kill
The Italian Press estimates that 600 people have been murdered here since the war-among them an unfortunate English couple who had foolishly stopped for a picnic in bandit country Produced and directed by David C. REA

: THE BRITISH FILM COMEDY

A season of Britain's great laughter-makers
This week:
The Smallest Show on Earth starring
PETER SELLERS
MARGARET RUTHERFORD
VIRGINIA McKENNA
BILL TRAVERS , BERNARD MILES Directed by Michael Relph
Produced by Basil Dearden
A FRANK LAUNDER and SIDNEY GILLIAT production
Screenplay by WILLIAM ROSE and JOHN ELDRIDGE
The Spensers, an impoverished young couple, inherit a cinema in the North of England. Joy turns to dismay when they find it is only a run-down little flea-pit-The Bijou. With the cinema they inherit its staff-all living anachronisms : Old Tom, the doorman; Mrs. Fazackalee, the Edwardian cashier and silent-film piano accompanist; and Mr. Quill, the bibulous projectionist. (Bernard Miles, Margaret Rutherford , and Peter Sellers play this delightful trio with nostalgic affection.) When a neighbouring super-cinema makes a bid for The Bijou, the Spensers have to make the decision whether to sell up over the heads of their staff or to try to make a go of it.

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.
