A series of ten programmes 5: A Close Companion
Introduced by Christopher Roads
The revolver and the automatic pistol are now such commonplace guns that it seems unthinkable there was ever a time when they did not exist. Yet until the middle of the 19th century the pistol was regarded as no fit weapon for a soldier, suitable only for acts of highway robbery or affairs of honour. Its unreliability left many a would-be robber empty-handed and many a duellist unscathed. All this changed with the legendary Colonel Colt and the revolver, but contrary to the stories in the Westerns, he was not alone in bringing about this revolution in the design of what was to become every soldier's close companion. Narrated by DUNCAN CARSE

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.
