Saturday-Night Theatre


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.
Based on a short story by FREEMAN WILLS CROFT , with Confucius said: 'The wise man does not hide his true nature; it is only the impure who try to conceal what they really are.' This is true, too, of the Yang Chi Jade , in which the beauty consists of the flaws that are visible in the transparent stone -and perhaps it is also true of the mysterious French girl who plants the priceless jewel on Charles Pemberton.

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.
