Huntingtower: Part 3


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.
by John Buchan, dramatised in six parts by Edward Boyd, with Paul Curran as Dickson McCunn, Peter Settelen as John Heritage, Jean Taylor Smith as Mrs Morran, Andrew Faulds as James Loudon and Emma Jacobs as Saskia

Heritage and Dickson McCunn, with the help of the Gorbals Diehards, have managed to get inside Huntingtower and contact the imprisoned Princess Saskia. But can two men and six small boys defeat the combined strength of Loudon, Dobson, Leon, Spidel and the tinkers?

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.
