A season of films displaying the many-sided talents of Peter Sellers
Tonight starring Ian Carmichael, Terry-Thomas
and Dennis Price, Richard Attenborough, Margaret Rutherford
After his demob from the Army, Stanley Windrush attempts to enter Big Business using the influence of his shady Uncle Bertram. Stanley soon finds himself a hapless pawn in a crooked scheme to inflame labour relations and provoke a strike.
Amongst many notable comic performances in this film, Peter Sellers' is memorable, a performance which - more than any other - was responsible for the actor's rise to international stardom.

The world lightweight champion Ken Buchanan (Scotland) (left) v Sugar Ramos (South America) former world featherweight champion (right) [photo caption]
A featured international 10-round contest from tonight's Harry Levene promotion at Wembley.
BBC outside broadcast cameras bring you the whole of the fight direct from the Empire Pool and provide the first opportunity of seeing Ken Buchanan in a British ring since he became the undisputed lightweight champion of the world.
Sugar Ramos has twice fought Carlos Ortiz for the world crown and this will be a very testing warm-up fight for Buchanan before he defends his world title later this year.

Producer of the Week:
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.
