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.
A thriller serial in six episodes by Lindsay Hardy.
Starring Raymond Huntley, Peter Illing, Anthony Newlands
with Philip Bond, David Langton, and Doreen Aris

Arthur Boone, a private detective, is found shot dead and a direct link is established between him, Hedges, and Cheviot. The police now suspect Cheviot of killing both Hedges and Boone. Ryder continues to look for some other suspect. Denzel sends for Ryder and tries to bribe him to give up his search. Ryder throws the money in his face. Ryder decides to break into Boone's office to try to find some clue the police might have missed. As he is leaving the office, four of Denzel's thugs are waiting for him.

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.
