Series created by JOHN ELLIOT
Designer, Oliver Bayldon
Produced by ANTHONY READ
Directed by RIDLEY SCOTT
The lovely Mrs. Foss, wife of Mogul's founder, turns up in London in the middle of a take-over battle. Inevitably, she brings chaos and confusion-particularly to Alec Stewart.
For once, Troubleshooters is confined to London. But Mogul's London is as exciting as any exotic location. Scenes range from the floor of the Stock Exchange and the head office of a bank in the City-both real-to the glitter of the West End by night and the calm of Hyde Park at dawn

: THE SKY AT NIGHT

The Moon-A New Era
Man has just taken his first close look at the moon, and in a few months American spacecraft are expected to bring back samples of the moon's crust for analysis.
At this turning point in lunar research, as the long history of earth-based observation gives way to first-hand experience, Patrick Moore sums up our present knowledge; Raymond Baxter discusses the significance of the new developments with Sir Bernard Lovell , Professor J. G. Davies , and Dr. J. H. Thomson at Jodrell Bank; and Patrick Moore describes the optical work done at the world's highest observatory, the Pic du Midi.

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.
