: That's Action!

featuring
John Wayne , Victor McLaglen
Maureen O'Hara , Ernest Borgnine Joan Crawford
Douglas Fairbanks Jr
Cary Grant, Sterling Hayden
Rita Hayworth , Charles Laughton Barbara Stanwyck Marlene Dietrich and a cast of thousands!
In the golden days of Hollywood there was a special kind of hero, a man who was prepared to stand up and fight, to risk life and limb, for what he believed to be right - the type of hero personified by John ' Duke ' Wayne - who expressed themselves not through words, but in action.
That's Action! pays tribute to these tough guys (and the equally strong women who stood up to them) and rediscovers some of the finest moments of adventure and romance in such films as The Quiet Man, Gunga Din , Rio Grande, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Sands of Iwo Jima and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. Narrated by ART LINKLETTER

In the final Everyman of this series, CLIFF RICHARD talks about the private side of his life and the claims that Christian morality makes on his personal philosophy, lifestyle and sexual conduct.

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.
