The disappearance of six of the world's most famous scientists at the close of an international scientific conference in London leaves the police completely baffled. There seems little doubt that' they have been kidnapped, but there is not a single clue as to their whereabouts. After a secret conference at the headquarters of M.I. 5, Gregory Vaughan and an American F.B.I, agent, Rocky Mountain, pay a call on James Summerlee, secretary to Lord Seldon, organiser of the conference. Summerlee however has been drugged, and after rushing him off to hospital they return to make another grim discovery.

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.
