Series devised by ALAN PLATER from an initial idea by ALAN PLATER and PHILIP LEVENE
Script editor, Gerry Davis
Designer, Don Giles
Producer, TERENCE DUDLEY
Directed by ERIC HILLS
Once a year, Furness erupts into ' Frag,' the annual rag week of Furness Technical College. The students run wild and their high spirits are treated with a tolerant understanding by both police and council. However, this year a new element is introduced into the proceedings when George Kingston is unexpectedly kidnapped from the steps of the Town Hall. He is taken to an isolated hideout at the top of one of his own buildings and held prisoner. Worse still, Tom Danby helped in the kidnapping and George's sister Angela blames Sarah for the affair.

In this, the final programme in the series
Christopher Brasher interviews
SIR FRANK KEARTON
For two years Sir Frank, as Chairman of the Industrial Reorganisation Corporation, acted as midwife to many of the take-overs and mergers which have swept away many famous company names in a dramatic reorganisation of British industry-giving industry a sleeker, more competitive image. He himself is the victor of a famous take-over battle-between I.C.I, and his own company, Courtaulds.
What lies behind these take-overs? Why does the Government take such a close interest? Why have we languished so long in the world economic league table? Will we ever get out of our present troubles?

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.
