The Curious Case of Victor Grayson


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.
This film tells the extraordinary story of Victor Grayson , Socialist MP for Colne Valley from 1907 to 1910. He was a political
Phenomenon and many saw him as a future Prime Minister. Yet his
Parliamentary career lasted Just three years.
Grayson's claim to fame lies in his mysterious disappearance from public and private life. On 17
September 1920, accompanied by two men, he walked out of his fashionable London flat.
Friends and family never saw him again. Nobody appears to know why or where he went. A recent biography of Grayson by David Clark , MP reveals new evidence which answers some of the questions which have remained unanswered for over 60 years.

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.
