: FRANCIS DURBRIDGE PRESENTS....

A Game of Murder
A thriller in six parts starring
GERALD HARPER , CONRAD PHILLIPS
DAVID BURKE
PART 1
Script editor, Roger Parkes
Designer, Roy Oxley
Produced by ALAN BROMLY
First shown on BBC-2
When once-famous athlete Bob Kerry is found dead on a golf course his son Jack refuses to accept the coroner's verdict of death by misadventure. As a detective-inspector on leave he is able to follow up his suspicions, and in the process he discovers the secrets of his father's private life-discoveries which guarantee six suspenseful episodes.
... a new Francis Durbridge serial, ' A Game of Murder,' in which Mr. Durbridge, with his own virtuosity, cooked up a situation of endless potentialities and baffling mystifications. Like all his work, it will leave us no peace until we know the answer. THE TIMES
The question is not whether the story's suspense will keep taut, but whether we can be suspended for so many weeks without snapping.

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.
