This is the first of six repeat showings of stories that Harry Worth and writer, Ronnie Taylor , like best from two previous series. Tonight Our Hero has joined the Men's Friendship League and is fulfilling his duties as a hospital visitor. It is unfortunate that he is chosen to sit at the bedside of one of the more cantankerous patients -and worse still that he has mistakenly concluded that the poor chap has only hours to live ..

Tonight's play by West Indian author-actor Errol John is very much a black man's view of white society. Jimmy Cardinez , a West Indian who has lived most of his life in America, comes to Europe on a sentimental journey to revisit the places he saw during the second world war. By accident, in Coventry Cathedral, he meets a cousin of his, Kester McWil liams. Kester and his sister Esla are rich, sophisticated West Indians who can largely pass for white. Esla lives in London working as an artist and sharing a flat with Gabriella, a mondaine fashion editor; Kester is teaching at an English university. All are exiles at heart, and tonight's play follows the four characters as they move among a white society and tries to convey the feeling of emotional exile that affects each of them.

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
