: The Inn of the Sixth Happiness

Starring Ingrid Bergman, Curt Jurgens, Robert Donat
Gladys Aylward died in Formosa in 1970, after more than 30 years as a missionary in mainland China. The true story of her determined struggle against apparently hopeless odds is an almost incredible record of courage and dedication.

: The Life and Travels of Miguel de Cervantes

A film about the author of Don Quixote narrated by Frank Finlay.
Don Quixote was published in 1604 and has been a bestseller ever since. It has been filmed several times, made into a musical, and on Sunday 7 January will be presented on BBC television with REX HARRISON playing Don Quixote.
The Don and his servant Sancho Panza are famous figures-but the story of their creator, Miguel de Cervantes , is much less well known.
This film biography traces the adventurous life of Miguel de Cervantes until he died on 23 April 1616 - on the same day as William Shakespeare.
Film cameraman ROBIN BROWNE Producer JOSEPH p. RYAN
(Cover star of RADIO TIMES in two weeks is Rex Harrison - as Don Quixote)

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.
