: Lancer: Jelly Hoskins' American Dream

A pioneer settler and his two sons fighting to keep their hard-won cattle land in the lawless territory of California during the closing years of last century.

A large, ungainly, humpbacked bull with a friendly tendency for licking hands hardly seems worthy of the excitement, intrigue and deceit that surrounds it. But although 'Hump' may be ugly he is rather special.

Andrew Duggan, the tall actor who plays Murdoch Lancer, cut his professional teeth with the US equivalent of ENSA during World War II. Later, he was in the stage productions of "Paint Your Wagon" and "The Rose Tattoo".

: Horizon: All Creatures Great and Small

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today.

Which of the following adjectives in each pair would you associate with live animal experiments in this country, usually called 'vivisection'?
Cruel Kind
Unnecessary Essential
Painful Painless
Wasteful Economical

Many people would choose with confidence the adjectives on the left-hand side. But do we really know what goes on where 'vivisection' is practised and why these experiments are supposed to be necessary? Do the benefits obtained justify man's using the other animals for his own health and well-being?
Tonight's Horizon shows people on both sides of a very wide gulf - the anti-vivisectionists whose opposition is outspoken, and the scientists who carry out this work but rarely speak out for fear of stirring up even more opposition.

: Spain is Different: 2: The Magnificent Horsemen

Spain is women: Spain is bulls
Spain is guitars: Spain is horses
Four faces of Spain observed by Terence Carroll

Andalucia produces some of the best and most dashing horsemen in the world. Many of the cowboys of 'Western' legend and reality in fact came from this part of Spain.
In this film Terence Carroll joins the caballeros as they prepare for the greatest assembly of Spanish horses and riders-the April Fair in Seville.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
