starring Roy Rogers and Clay O'Brien
Roy Rogers , legendary King of the Cowboys, is back after a 20-year absence, to star as Mackintosh, a drifting ranch-hand who teams up with a rebellious young vagrant known as T.J. in this exciting modern story about the West, told against the backdrop of a real ranch, the 6666, in the ' Big Ranch Country' of West Texas. No stetson or silver six-guns, Rogers now gets around without Trigger, in a broken-down pick-up truck.

: The Diplomatic Style of Andrew Young

A portrait of the maverick UN Ambassador who ' shoots from the hip '. The film follows Andrew Young from his Malta talks with the Patriotic Front, to his life at the UN, and to the deep south with his family.
The reporter is Jonathan Power who has known Andy Young since the Civil Rights days. He interviews our own Foreign Secretary Dr David Owen
Zbigniew Brzezinski and Robert Mugabe and asks-what sort of man is Andy Young? What drives him? Could he, as some claim, become the first black president of the USA?

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.
