About the time when Nelson won the battle of Trafalgar, white settlers in America were steadily driving the Red Indians westward from their hunting grounds. To the Ohio wilderness came Silas Sutherland with his wife and daughter, and there, with his axe and his two hands, he built their log cabin home - fort as well as house, for it stood alone, fifty miles from the nearest blockhouse, fifty miles from help of any kind.
This was the country of the Shawnee and Miami tribes. Sometimes they were at peace with the white man, sometimes they dug up the hatchet - or, as we should say, declared war. Then all along the frontier the settlers' cabins went up in flames, and men, women, and children lost their lives.
When news of a Red Indian rising came, the settlers in their lonely cabins had a hard choice. They could barricade their doors, block up their narrow windows, and fight it out.

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.
