: The High Chaparral: Fiesta

The High Chaparral is the home of a pioneer family in the newly won West; is the prize the settlers must hold against outlaws and Indians; and spells adventure in the wild Arizona territory of 1870.

Riding across Mexico to join in the fun of a village fiesta, Buck makes a grim discovery-in that poverty-stricken land orphan boys are bought and sold for the profitable sport of boyfighting...

: Horizon: Rumours of Wars

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

For several years now, many of us have closed our minds to the possibility of a nuclear war, as though the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never happened. Yet the build-up of nuclear weapons continues, with a current global stockpile equivalent to 10 tons of TNT for every person alive in the world today.
But quantity is no real measure of the problem of the balance of power. In the last 25 years over 7,000 increasingly sophisticated nuclear weapons have been developed in the US alone. The hours once available for calling off a bomber attack have been reduced to minutes with the missile systems.
Has this technology led to greater security for the countries concerned or to a situation fast becoming impossible to control? What real chance is there of ever calling off the arms race?
For this programme, Horizon filmed at a missile base in Missouri, an H-bomb museum in New Mexico, and talked to scientists personally involved in the dynamics of the arms race.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
