: HARRY WORTH

in a new series of unlikely situations
Written by RONNIE TAYLOR
This week:
Private Pimpernel featuring
Music by DENNIS WILSON
Design by Peter Brachacki
Produced by DUNCAN WOOD
Tonight sees the start of a new series of situation comedies starring Harry Worth , managing as ever to complicate even the most simple activities. This first story takes us back to 1944 and a fighter aerodrome, and the predicament of Wing Commander Stebbs, one of whose friends has been shot down and captured in France. The rescue plan he has thought out depends on one man's courage, daring, iron will, and split-second timing. The man chosen for the mission? Need you ask ...

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.
