In the early 1920s Germany was in a state of economic chaos, crippled by reparations; the value of the Mark fell until it impoverished the middle-class. One of the victims was Herr Tonn , whose avarice led him to ' sell' his own daughter and steal money to make more on the black exchange. Tonight's play takes place in his pension which houses an assortment of English expatriates, social rejects, and an Irish gunman who finds his salvation in Herr Tonn 's beautiful, but abused daughter.

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.
