: High Adventure: Ten Tall Men

Tonight's feature film starring Burt Lancaster, Gilbert Roland, Kieron Moore

For the most dangerous wartime missions, send a band of convicted criminals who have nothing to lose... It's a good plot, and Robert Aldrich used it for his grimly realistic "Dirty Dozen". In "Ten Tall Men" it turns up in an earlier and lighter variation with Burt Lancaster as the hard-bitten Sergeant Kincaid, a French Legionnaire jailed for flirting with the commandant's wife.
With the fort at Tarfa under Riff attack, Kincaid and nine other prisoners are released on a suicide mission. And the name of the associate producer? It's Robert Aldrich!

: The Big Fight: The Sixties

At the ringside Harry Carpenter
The sixties through British eyes would at first appear to belong to two men: Henry Cooper, our champion through the decade, and Cassius Clay. But other names come to mind: Terry Downes, Dave Charnley, Brian Curvis, Howard Winstone. In 10 years British boxers fought for world titles at every principal weight. British boxing reached a very high standard indeed in the sixties.
Tonight's bill: Brown v Charnley, Downes v Pastrano, Curvis v Griffith, Winstone v Saldivar, Clay v Liston

: Quiz of the Week

Ned Sherrin looks back at the events of the week and tests the wits and memories of two teams who might be expected to have a better chance than most of knowing what's been going on.
Resident team William Rushton, Richard Ingrams, John Wells

"'Quiz of the Week' reveals Ned Sherrin as a television performer of glamour, ease, and occasional acidity. Each week he shows up most of the panel (Members of Parliament excepted) as people who do not seem to be in touch with the news; one television critic on the panel showed a surprising lack of what is what in the outside world." (The Guardian Television Critic writing of the last series)


Presenter: Ned Sherrin
Panellist: William Rushton
Panellist: Richard Ingrams
Panellist: John Wells
Producer: Anthony Smith

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
