: United!: The Kingpin

by Brian Hayles
From the Midlands

A twice-weekly serial set in the exciting world of League Football.
Association Football, the made-in-Britain sport which has grown into the world's foremost ball game, can provide almost every element of drama. Matches are themselves action dramas; the struggle of the game as a whole to survive in its country of birth in the face of diminishing gates is another kind of drama. Comedies and tragedies are played out in the rivalries between players, the conflicts of players with managements, the opposing claims of club and family loyalties. The new twice-weekly (Monday and Wednesday) serial opening today aims to exploit these possibilities by following the fortunes of one fictional club, 'United' belongs somewhere in the Midlands, and has just taken on a keen young manager whose task is to try to lift the club from its precarious position at the bottom of the Second Division. Gerry Barford, played by David Lodge (right), is responsible to the club's chairman, Ted Dawson (Robin Wentworth), and has to cope with his ingratiating secretary, Frank Silby (Arnold Peters). He also has domestic responsibilities: to his wife Mary (Ursula O'Leary) and to his son Kevin, an ambitious young footballer. Then there are the players themselves, among them Jack Birkett, Jimmy Stokes, Mick Dougall, Kenny Craig, and Curly Parker - each one a distinct and sometimes troublesome person.

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

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.
