Patrick Malahide
I returns as Ngalo Marsh 's aristocratic sleuth In a new feature-length episode entitled Dead Water.
Margaret Tyzack and Jane Lapotaire co-star as two women at war over the future of a small
Scottish island. Miss Pride is the rightful landlord of Portacarrick, but Miss Cost is determined to turn It into a tourist attraction after the alleged cure of a young boy's warts by a "fairy" spring. A local squabble turns sinister after an attempt on Miss Pride's life; old friend Alleyn returns from his holiday to investigate.
A web of adultery and sexual jealousy soon weaves Itself around picturesque Pixie Falls.
The Inspector Alleyn Mysteries first came to the screen last year; Dead Water and other new episodes are showing as occasional "one-offs" rather than as a single series.

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.
