John Meade Falkner's Bag of Paradoxes


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.
Largely forgotten today, Moonfleet's author, John Meade
Falkner, was a man of many paradoxes. The writer of the great children's adventure book was also chairman of one of the biggest armaments firms in the country. Using extracts from his novels and poetry, David Almond traces the author's daily train journey between Newcastle and Durham in an attempt to find the influences that shaped his writing. And why, allegedly, a foreign power might have stolen the draft of his fourth book.
Producer Philip Titcombe Repeated on Sunday at 12.15am

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.
