: British Movies of the Fifties: Conflict of Wings

A season of films from a decade of movie-making
Starring John Gregson, Muriel Pavlow, Kieron Moore, Niall MacGinnis

When the R.A.F. plan to use a remote Norfolk bird sanctuary as a target range, the local villagers resort to every means at their disposal to prevent it.
Produced by Group 3, the Government financed film unit intended to act as a 'third force' between Rank and ABC, Conflict of Wings follows the Ealing tradition. But it is cast in a more serious vein as it poses a very real question: which things are more important to us - wildlife or aeroplanes? In the end the film is inconclusive in resolving the problem, but it embodies nevertheless an element of interesting topicality in view of the prevailing controversy over the sighting of London's third airport, in which similar problems of reconciling social necessity with rural amenity are involved.

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.
