Produced by MICHAEL MILLS
There is no reason why the arrival of Chantal, an attractive au pair girl, should upset the even tenor of the family's life. but for some reason it has an explosive effect which seems to set off a family crisis. This, the opening episode of a new comedy series, was first seen as a Comedy Playhouse, and was so well received by the public that it was decided to extend the idea.

: INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL

from Bucharest Rumania v. England
England, in their first international of the season, meet Rumania for the first time since May 1939, when England won 2-0 in Bucharest.
Commentator,
Kenneth Wolstenholme
Television presentation by the Rumanian Television Service
'England will be breaking new ground in postwar football when they visit Bucharest to play Rumania,' says Kenneth Wolsten holme.
'Only once previously in the history of the game has England played Rumania and that was in one of the last international matches before the Second World War, when England won 2-0. Rumania may seem a surprising choice for this international, but Sir Alf Ramsey wants the England team to have experience of all types of opposition before the World Cup, which is less than two years away, and Rumania will provide just the type of opposition which could upset even the best of sides. Consistency may not be their strong point, but when they are on their game they can turn out some tremendous performances, especially in their own country. They play the sort of strong, hard football which characterises our game as well as the game in countries such as Germany and Yugoslavia. So Sir Alf Ramsey could hardly have chosen a tougher first international of the season for his England team.'

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.
