: Omnibus: Whistle and I'll Come to You

presenting Michael Hordern in Jonathan Miller's adaptation of the famous ghost story by M. R. James.
Michael Hordern as a professor who discovers the dangers of playing with superstition - Whistle and I'll Come to You

Jonathan Miller writes: Film subjects usually occur to me without much warning. One evening last autumn I was watching John Betjeman on Take It or Leave It. He was talking about the ghost stories of M.R. James and I was reminded of the grisliest of them all - Whistle and I'll Come to You. I knew that this would have to be my next film for the BBC. The story is familiar to most people who enjoy tales of the supernatural - the winter holiday on the Norfolk coast, the mysterious whistle discovered in the sand, the horrible animations of the bedclothes.
Strangely enough ghost stories were only a sideline for James. One after the other he was Provost of King's College, Cambridge, and Eton. He was a Medieval and Classical Archaeologist of enormous distinction. He had a prodigious memory and a standard of scholarship which became a myth in his own lifetime.
The stories are full of strange academics and in Whistle and I'll Come to You he illustrates the horrifying punishments that lie in store for those who put too much trust in the intellect. It is a story of academic solitude and of the dangerous forces that lie beneath the surface of reason and scholarship.
With a story as famous as this it is obviously impossible to satisfy everyone's expectations, but I have adapted it very freely since most of James's original dialogue is ludicrously stilted.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
