It was at Hever that Anne spent her youth and where Henry VIII met and wooed her.

The West Indies ... visions of exotic islands set in a sapphire sea ... dreams of a Caribbean cruise in the wake of Columbus and Ralegh. But as the captain plots his course from Kingston to Castries or from Bridgetown to Port of Spain few of his passengers are likely to reflect that this journey could once be done by ' a ship without compass, map, or guide, only following the track of dead bodies '— the bodies of slaves imported to work the sugar plantations.
Peter Robinson is an English-man who was born in one of these islands, Trinidad, and lived there until he was fifteen. Now, nearly twenty-five years later, he returns to the place of his childhood. Outwardly it has changed little: the same beautiful beaches ring the coastline, the same shoddy shanty towns crown the hills. But in less than 150 years this tiny island the size of Lancashire, populated by one million assorted souls, has been transported from slavery, through colonialism, to Independence: and from the most brutal beginnings has emerged a society which holds out the richest hopes of racial harmony.

Count Three and Pray starring
JOANNE WOODWARD with Raymond Burr
Allison Hayes
Screenplay by HERB MEADOW
Directed by George Sherman
Produced by Ted Richmond
A Southerner who fought on the Union side in the Civil War meets hatred and hostility when he returns home.
This was the film which gave
Joanne Woodward her first really big acting opportunity before she went on to Oscar-winning fame with her performance in The Three Faces of Eve. George Sherman 's thoughtful direction, and Burnett Guffey 's painstaking location photography combine to create a convincing impression of the confused and embittered scene which was rural America in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War.

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.
