A young woman lies dead in a country road in the early hours of the morning, apparently the victim of a hit-and-run driver. But something doesn't quite fit. She lived in the town - why would she be walking in the country at that time ... in those shoes? ...And what about the tyre marks?

The series in which famous sports stars talk about themselves ana their sports against the backcloth of their own action.
A Genius-But a Human Being
Gary Sobers of the West Indies and Nottinghamshire, without question the world's greatest all-round cricketer, is something short of perfection as a captain. ' Unpredictable
...' dogmatic ' ... ' obstinate are some of the words used to describe his captaincy. But, on or off the field, Sobers commands respect as a cricketer and as a man.
This summer's Test Series revealed Sobers as a tired man, on whom the strain of almost continuous cricket throughout the year had taken an inevitable toll. Sobers admits this and talks frankly about his future: 'I definitely need a rest .. because I cannot concentrate.' Have we seen the last of him as a Test player?
Tonight's programme examines his strengths and weaknesses and shows him both under the tension of play in Test matches and relaxing as a gambler who 'loves living.'

presenting a series of feature films reflecting some of the finest work of many of France's most famous and talented directors and artists
Pickpocket starring
Photographed by L. G. BUREL Written and directed by Robert Bresson
Produced by Agnes Delahaie
A young intellectual finds that picking pockets provides the stimulation his earlier life failed to offer.
Robert Bresson uses a non-professional cast in this impressively' close study of an intelligent young man who deliberately takes up crime. Non-professional in the acting sense, that is; at least one member of the company, Kassagi, is a skilled and thoroughly professional practitioner of the art the film deals with, and since it was made he has served several sentences.
Martin Lassalle plays Michel, the bright youngster whose rejection of society coupled with a self-destructive drive moves him first to pilfer pettily and then, under expert training from Kassagi, to pick pockets; Marika Green touchingly portrays Joanne, the girl who obstinately insists on loving him; Jean Pelegri is a policeman seen almost as a confessor; and in a smallish part is Pierre Etaix , subsequently the actor-director of Le Soupirant, Yoyo, and other works.

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.
