: Saturday Cinema: The Outcast

starring John Derek, Joan Evans, Jim Davis

A young man returns to town, determined to avenge himself on the uncle who has cheated him out of his rightful inheritance.
Based on an Esquire magazine story by Todhunter Ballard, this fast-moving Western was filmed mainly on location in Colorado. The film's director, William Witney. was responsible for The Bonnie Parker Story, made in 1958. However, it was not until Faye Dunaway portrayed this gun-slinging gangster's moll in 1967 that Bonnie and Clyde became 'in' people.

: Rugby Special: The International Championship 1968-69: Ireland v. France

at Lansdowne Road, Dublin
Introduced by Cliff Morgan

With French ambitions for this season's championship title thwarted at the very first hurdle by Scotland's unexpected victory in Paris a fortnight ago, the reigning-and doubtless still bemused-champions today offer the challenge of their irrepressible brand of rugby skills to the Irish, whose team-building plans may have been seriously affected by the misfortunes of their final trial, including the injury to key player Mike Gibson: this has meant the inclusion of two new caps in the Irish XV, Barry McGann at fly-half and Jim Davidson at wing-forward.
The twenty-year-old McGann, who plays rugby on Saturdays and amateur soccer on Sundays, is the youngest member of a side which also welcomes the return to international rugby of Noel Murphy, collecting his thirty-eighth cap.

: Cameron Country: St. Patrick's Progress

James Cameron's own series of documentary films.

Three hundred years ago, right in the heart of Ireland, the last decisive battle of Irish history was fought and lost. The Irish have never won anything since.
Now the developers have moved in. The tourist promoters, the industrialists, the glossy photographers, the pop-group managers, are tearing the old country apart. In tonight's film James Cameron picks his way through the ruins: 'It's a great place for ruins, Ireland.'



Presenter: James Cameron
Producer: Richard Marquand

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.
