The story of a 100-mile journey by an American Gi, a nurse, a priest, seven children-and some unexpected passengers - in a rickety, wheezing church bus. Made on location in the Philippines, this World War II adventure stars Doug McClure as a gruff and cynical corporal concerned only with saving his own skin in a countryside teeming with enemy troops.

: The Risk Business

Do You Sincerely Want to be Rich? The cheapest and apparently the safest way to set up in business on your own is to buy a franchise - the licence to operate one part of a chain of shops, service companies, plumbing businesses, or even hotels. The masterminds behind the operation have done the groundwork for you, developed the product, advertised it nationally, even assessed the chances of your operation making you the fortune you desire. In theory, all you have to supply is the blood, sweat, and a cheque for a few thousand pounds.
But is it so simple? Michael Rodd meets the American millionaire who pioneered franchising in Britain, yet still works as a flight engineer for Pan Am. He meets some highly-satisfied franchisees ... but then discovers that dreams can melt away when the franchisor isn't doing his job properly.
Even franchising can be a Risk Business, and it pays to know exactly what you are doing when you plunge your life's savings into someone else's business.

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.
