: The Tuesday Film: The Glory Guys

Starring Tom Tryon, Harve Presnell, Senta Berger, Michael Anderson Jr, James Caan

In this rousing tale of cavalry versus Indians during the roaring 70s, the villains of the piece are the high-ranking cavalry officers - in particular the ambitious General McCabe, for whom victory at any price is all-important.
Tom Tryon stars as a cavalry captain with good reason for suspecting that the General's orders will mean death as well as glory for his troopers.

: Wildlife on One

The last programme in the series Shipwreck *
Only a mile from a holiday beach on the South Devon coast the wartime wreck of an American liberty ship lives on-as an artificial reef. A rich variety of colourful marine life now encrusts the hull while in the jumbled wreckage, lobsters and wrasse have taken up residence. Deep in the gloomy holds, fish shelter by the thousand and the deadly cuttlefish hunts for its next meal.

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.
