When the Duke of Burgundy agrees to a marriage between his ward Isabelle and the ageing Lord Crawford, the lord sends his nephew
Quentin Durward to advance his suit. But Durward soon finds Isabelle has a mind of her own and has no wish to be used as a pawn in the intrigues of Burgundy and the scheming King Louis XI of France.

The Adventures of Quentin Durward

BBC One London, 21 December 1988 14.15

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
