: Saturday Morning Film: Old Bones of the River

starring Will Hay with Moore Marriott
Graham Moffatt
An inspired 'African adventure', in which teacher
Benjamin Tibbetts , acting as the local commissioner, is called on to quell a native rising. Aided by Jerry and Albert, captain and mate of an antiquated steamer 'Tibbetts' comes to the rescue of the Europeans. This rarely-seen
British comedy classic proves to be vintage material and remains one of the most inspired films starring the incomparable trio.

starring David Essex Adam Faith
Larry Hagman
Having finally made the break from home and his family,
Jim Maclaine became a full-time rock musician with The Straycats. With fairground hustler Mike as their road manager, the group soon hit the big time. Gradually the pressures of work, high-powered money men and super stardom take their toll on Jim. David Essex continues his fine portrayal of the young singer from That'll Be the Day with memorable supporting performances from Adam Faith and Larry Hagman.

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.
