Thirty-Minute Theatre: A Nice Cool Pad in the Sky

Synopsis

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 Graham Seal
with Glynn Edwards as George Harris, Donald Gee as Bob Crane, Denise Buckley as Barbara

George Harris is among the biggest and most ruthless tycoons. He is about to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of his company by clinching an important take-over bid. But there is something about this day of all days which is not right. His secretary seems oddly dressed, the typing pool is deserted, and there is Bob Crane. He has come unannounced for an interview. Normally Harris wouldn't bother, but today he can afford to be generous. It turns out, also, to be the day he makes the biggest mistake of his life.

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.
