: Children's Television: Billy Bunter of Greyfriars School: Beastly for Bunter

A new series for television by Frank Richards
[Starring] Gerald Campion

Pharic Maclaren writes:
In the timeless air of Greyfriars School, life goes on just as it always has done. The gimlet eyes of Mr. Quelch are quite as steely as they ever were and Billy Bunter still likes cake-no matter whose it is. Happily for us, the occupants of Greyfriars, like all our fictional friends and heroes, neither change nor grow any older, though not all the actors who brought Frank Richards's characters to life in previous episodes on television are available to take part when a new series comes along. But though the casts may change, the characters that we and our parents have come to know so well, will always remain just as they have always been. Wharton, Cherry, Nugent, Johnny Bull , and Hurree Singh will still be the 'Famous Five'. Mr. Quelch will still be the Beak, and jam tarts will always be jam tarts, and fair game to Billy Bunter, whom you can see again this afternoon.

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.
