: DETECTIVE

A crime series
This week: investigate the case of The Murders in the Rue Morgue by EDGAR ALLAN POE
Dramatised by JAMES MAcTAGGART
Cast in order of appearance:
Lighting, Howard King
Script editor,
Anthea Browne-Wilkinson
Designer, Tim Gleeson
Producer, VERITY LAMBERT
Directed by JAMES CELLAN JONES
Charles Kay is a member of the National Theatre Company
Night is the time for terror, that walks the streets and invades the most closely guarded privacy. Who could have penetrated into the locked and shuttered house in the Rue Morgue? What superhuman agency could have committed such atrocities on the innocent, elderly victims? And will the terror walk again-will the horror be repeated? Dupin and his friend Poe test their theories of deductive reasoning and discover the reality behind the seemingly impossible events. Paris in 1841 provides the setting for this, the last in the series of Detective, and the first detective story ever written.

: Play of the Month presenting: St. Joan


by Bernard ShawJanet Suzman,John Gielgud
with Keith Baxter, Colin Blakely, Michael Craig, Maurice Denham, Murray Melvin, Ronald Pickup
(Janet Suzman is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company; Colin Blakely and Ronald Pickup are National Theatre Players)

Shaw's "St. Joan" is Play of the Month at 9.20 tonight.
Joan of Arc is one of the most fascinating women in history, and certainly one of the most controversial. The French peasant girl who rose to lead her country's army to victory over the mighty forces of the English has been portrayed by two of our greatest playwrights. Shakespeare's picture of Joan La Pucelle in "Henry VI" is far from flattering, but Shaw's much more developed and sympathetic study in "St. Joan" has made the part one of the most sought-after among young actresses.
In this entirely new production, Joan is played by Janet Suzman who in the past few years with the Royal Shakespeare Company has established herself as one of Britain's most talented classical actresses. Currently, she's starring at Stratford in "As You Like It", and later in the season she will appear in "Much Ado About Nothing".
A strong supporting cast includes John Gielgud, Michael Craig, who starred recently in "Spoiled" on BBC-1, Murray Melvin, Colin Blakely of the National Theatre, and Maurice Denham whose many television roles have included that of 'father' in John Hopkins's "Talking to a Stranger".

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.
