Saturday-Night Theatre: Death at the Dolphin


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.
The novel by NGAIO MARSH adapted for radio by ALISON PLOWDEN with David Valla, Malcolm Hayes, Frank Duncan, Anthony Hall and Peter Howell as Det-Supt Alleyn. The rehabilitation of the old Dolphin - once a charming Thameside theatre, now dusty and derelict - seemed a wonderful project to playwright Peregrine Jay and his distinguished cast. But there were emotional - and other - complications no one had foreseen.
Produced by BETTY DAVIES (Repeated: Monday, 3.0 pm)

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.
