5—' Pablito meets some Friends '
5.10 For Older Children
' The Mystine Mutation'
A new adventure of Professor Mallory
Written for broadcasting in six episodes by Marjorie Wynn-Williams
5 — 'The Search'
Production by Lorraine Davies
Professor Mallory and his friends have found that the missing research student, Lee Cantrill, has been secretly experimenting with Mystine, a new narcotic drug which also acts as a growth promoter. However, from a bundle of papers written in Spanish Mallory learns that Mystine was actually discovered by a South American scientist more than ten years ago. Greatly interested in Cantrill's experiments is a certain Dr. Zeist; also Milo de Rivas, another research worker. And when the existence of a tribe of double-sized rats proves that the increased growth can be inherited, the Professor suddenly realises that Mystine has the most alarming possibilities.

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.
