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.
by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial for broadcasting by John Keir Cross
7—' Pate-in-Peril '
Produced by James Crampsey
(George Davies is appearing in ' The Tinkers of the World at the Gateway Theatre, Edinburgh; Tom Fleming broadcasts by permission of the Gateway Theatre, Edinburgh; David Steuart by permission of Perth Repertory Theatre)
Darsie Latimer now knows that the mysterious Laird of the Solway Lochs -he who has twice saved the young man's life, first from the Solway quick-sand and later from the murderous hand of Cristal Nixon-is an attainted Jacobite. He knows, too, that the Laird not only has abducted him, prisoner-like, into the forbidden England of his birth, but has let Latimer's Scottish friends believe he has been murdered.
In England, in Cumberland to be more precise, our young hero finds himself arraigned before the magistrate, Mr. Justice Foxley, when the Laird, apparently known as Squire Ingoldsby in these parts, seeks a warrant for his custody. The hearing of the case is interrupted by the arrival from Scotland of Peter Peebles. Thereafter Latimer is shown that he, like the Laird, bears on his brow the unmistakable horse-shoe mark of the Redgauntlet of Wandering Willie's tale!

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.
