Stories of Mary Plain by GWYNEDD RAE
Mary Plain is a small but energetic bear from Berne in Switzerland. Her family are real bears, the kind that can be seen in zoos, but Mary herself is rather extraordinary and unusual even for a bear. In these stories she has a series of strange adventures and becomes famous, but not until her curiosity has led her into the oddest situations.

'Let's show the Yanks what it is to be British,' says Brian Stead. And to prove it he takes the entire board of Mogul International across the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth 2. But this is no empty gesture. The moment of decision has arrived in the Mogul-Zenith merger battle. For the crucial board meeting the directors must be away from outside interference.
The whole of this episode, apart from a short opening scene in Mogul House, is set on board the QE2. As a bonus, night-club entertainment is provided by singing star Jackie Trent.
Because of the changes in the QE2's schedule, actress Dora Reisser (Mrs. Foss) had to be specially flown back from Acapulco to film on the ship. The biggest headache, however, was given to designer John Hurst , who was required to re-create the interiors of the QE2 for studio work—quite a task.

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.
