: The Sunday Film The Snows of Kilimanjaro

starring
Gregory Peck
Susan Hayward , Ava Gardner
The first in this new season of outstanding feature films is adapted from the famous novel by Ernest Hemingway. Writer Harry Street (Gregory Peck ) lies injured and dangerously ill in an African hunting camp. Attended by his wife (Susan Hayward ), he begins to review his life-the search for love and adventure that have brought him to the hot plains beneath the mountain of Kilimanjaro.
Like many of his stories, Kilimanjaro suggests parallels with Hemingway's own life, moving as it does from sophisticated Thirties Paris to the brutality of the Spanish Civil War and the wide open spaces of Central Africa.
Hemingway's action-man stories with their personal blend of the beefcake and brains were naturals for Hollywood in the last two or three decades. A Farewell to Arms, To Have and Have Not, The Macomber Affair, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Killers all bore the stamp of Hemingway.

featuring
The Choir of Wandsworth School conducted by RUSSELL BURGESS
A few years ago school music often meant hymn-singing at Assembly. Today the situation has so altered that many school music groups are making recordings and giving public performances-. At Wandsworth Comprehensive School the Choir, under Russell Burgess , is so much in demand that music would seem to occupy the entire curriculum. In fact it is still an ' out of school' activity.

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.
