Spy thriller based on the true story of a double agent, starring Michael Maloney
Welshman Arthur George
Owens, a travelling salesman of electrical goods, started his life of intrigue in 1937 by working for British intelligence. By the time the Second World War broke out he had become the first controlled double'agent.
After much research, producer and writer Gareth Rowlands discovered some German intelligence archives which included 750 decoded messages passed on by Owens. "Going through them was just like sifting through a piece of history, "says Rowlands.

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.
