No Wreath for the General: Final Episode


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.
An adventure serial in six episodes by Donald Wilson.
Starring William Franklyn, Lana Morris, Rona Anderson, Moray Watson, Ewan Roberts
Roger Kenyon was astonished to find that Isobel Gilmour was his own former secretary, Isobel MacDonald. After persuading Roger that Alison Campbell was in no immediate danger, Isobel took him to the shepherd's bothy where, as she suspected, General Campbell was hiding. Campbell, still obsessed with his plan to sell Vanbrugh's fuel discovery privately, in order to provide a fortune for the dead inventor's destitute widow, and for Alison and Isobel, refused to listen when Roger warned him the game was up. Later, while Roger and Johnny Brookman were on their way to the bothy, they found the body of the missing oil negotiator, Caldwell.

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.
