A Western, starring Audie Murphy, Faith Domergue, Stephen McNally.
Claim jumping and murder are rife in Silver City. Sheriff Lightning Tyrone takes on The Silver Kid as his deputy to the horror of the townspeople who believe he is a killer and responsible for all the trouble. It takes a lot of shooting and riding and fighting for the kid to prove otherwise.
The Silver Kid:
Countries all over Africa have begun to exploit hydro-electric power, damming rivers and creating lakes hundreds of miles long, changing the way of life and environment in vast areas.
The benefits of these lakes are obvious - an unexpected source of fish, flood control, irrigation. But it's becoming ever more obvious that these assets are at least matched by the hazards the lakes create. Operation Noah, the project to save wildlife when Kariba was flooded, is well known; less well known is the fate of 50,000 Tongans made homeless at the same time, the spread of the dread disease Bilharzia into areas previously unaffected, the possibility of lakes changing the climate and even causing earthquakes.
It's easy to forget the pain of our own Industrial Revolution, but the pace of African development has been hastened by western investment. Tonight's Horizon asks if the price these countries are paying is not too great.

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.
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.
