: Around the World in Seven Minutes and Four Times on Saturday

A look back to the days of Pathe and Movietone newsreels with Bob Danvers Walker and Leslie Mitchell in conversation with Su Ingle. For more than 50 years the British cinemagoer was given a window on the world by the seven-minute newsreel. With the aid of original - and sometimes rare - footage, the two newsreel commentators recall the friendly rivalry between the companies to get that all-important 'scoop', and give a fascinating personal account of those historic, poignant and humorous world events which were brought to the people in the one-and-nines - almost as they happened.
This programme was Leslie Mitchell 's last appearance before his death in 1985 and provides a fitting tribute to a man whose distinctive voice and imperturbable manner made him a much respected figure in broadcasting. Written by MAURICE SELLAR and LOU JONES
Directed by ROGER MITCHELL (R) A CHARISMA FILMS production

Arthur Kennedy
Based on a true story from frontier history in the late
1870s, this epic Western was one of veteran director
John Ford 's last films. A group of Cheyennes decide to leave the Oklahoma reservation where they are being starved out of existence. They plan a 1500-mile trek to their old homelands in Wyoming. But the cavalry is forced by unsympathetic authority to halt the migration, and a revival of old hatreds - and war - seems inevitable.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
