The Sunday Play: A View to a Haunt


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 new kind of ghost story by Prix Italia-winning author Peter Redgrove. It's May Day night. While the Padstow 'Obby 'Oss, "ancient, immortal," weaves its way through the village, three women share stories which have something oddly in common, drawing them remorselessly to "what waits for us all at the dream centre".
Director Nigel Bryant Rpt

The Sunday Play: A View to a Haunt

BBC Radio 3, 28 January 1996 19.30

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.
