The Saturday Play: Inspector Rebus - The Falls


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 modern crime thriller based on Ian Rankin 's novel -featuring Inspector John Rebus. Dramatised in two parts by Bert Coules.
1: The Game. When a wealthy banker's daughter goes missing from Edinburgh University, Rebus has little to go on in his investigations. It's difficult to know whether the student has been murdered, kidnapped or is simply on the run. The discovery of a carved wooden doll inside a six-inch coffin and a game of cat-and-mouse on the internet offer vital but deadly clues.
Director Bruce Young

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.
