Will Hay in The Ghost of St Michael's


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 feature film with Claude Hulbert , Charles Hawtrey
When 'St Michael 's School' is evacuated to the eerie Dunbain Castle on the Isle of Skye, William Lamb - their new teacher - naturally goes with them. He soon learns that the castle is haunted by the ghost of Mad MacKinnon and that the bagpipes sound when someone is about to die ...
This comedy thriller, set in war-time Britain, is not only one of Hay's funniest films but also an exciting and often tense murder mystery.

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.
