: High Adventure Broken Arrow

Tonight's presentation in this season of feature films with action, spectacle, and excitement stars James Stewart
Jeff Chandler , Debra Paget
Set in the 1870s at the time of the Indian wars in Arizona, Broken Arrow is based on a true story which became a best-selling novel, Blood Brother. It is usually regarded as a landmark: it was the first Western to take a sympathetic view of the Indians instead of ' mowing them down.'
James Stewart plays the frontiersman, Tom Jeffords , who attempts to bring about a new understanding between the white man and the Indians.
Jeff Chandler , who had only made two films before this, plays Cochise, the famous Apache chief t
- a role he repeated in Battle at Apache Pass. His last film was Merrill's Marauders, completed shortly before his death in 1961. Screenplay by MICHAEL BLANKFORT based on the novel Blood Brother by ELLIOTT ARNOLD

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.
