: SOFTLY,SOFTLY

Red Herring by ELWYN Jones with Script editor, Arnold Yarrow
Designer, David Spode
Producer, LEONARD LEWIS
Directed by SHAUN O'RIORDAN
A hole in the fence around a factory engaged on manufacturing defence components; a nightwatchman who is more of an obstruction to those responsible for the factory's security than he would be to any potential intruder. To Cook it's a puzzle. Watt finds in it a suggestion of a ' cloak and dagger' mystery. Gilbert sees the combination of circumstances as somewhat ironic. But Box patiently uncovers a motive which surprises them all.

: PAY SCHOOLS

To send two children to even a cheap boarding school costs £ 30 a week of earned income. Yet thousands of parents somehow find the money. What do they pay for? The choice is wide. There are schools where the discipline is severe, the life spartan. There are schools for boys whose destiny is due to be one of privilege and preferment. There are schools for brain and schools for brawn. You pay your money and you take your choice.
This programme has been con. densed from a series of four, shown originally at the beginning of this year. It looks at four schools with very different ideas on what constitutes a good education. Milton Abbey is the newest boys' boarding school to achieve recognition as a public school. and is thriving because the parents believe it will turn boys into men. Lawnside is a college for young ladies, complete with felt hats, Sunday crocodiles, and healthy games. Millfield can be the most expensive of the four with fees up to £ 1,000 a year, but can also cost very little for outstanding or unusual pupils. Kilquhanity House is a small progressive school in Galloway where the pupils make most of the rules and the teachers do their best to obey.

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.
