The Haggard Falcon: 1: The Frog


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A new historical thriller in four parts by Bill Craig with Ian Ogilvy as Dominic Allardyce and Roddy McMillan as Gillespie, Victor Carin as Moray, John Carlisle as Lethington and Alex McAvoy as Puddock
1565. The barque Virgin of Leith creeps slowly through a sea mist homeward bound to Scotland from France. She carries three passengers. One is a soldier of fortune, Dominic Allardyce, lately of the French King's Garde Ecossaise. His companion is Puddock, a frog-like mountebank, recently met on the Dieppe quay-side. The third is a morose and anonymous Frenchman - and his puppet doll.
(BBC Scotland) (Repeated: Thursday at 8.30 pm)
(Ian Ireland appears by permission of the Young Lyceum Co, Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh)

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.
