The Blue Corpse


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 'Tragedy' in Two Lifts by an Undertaker.

Lady Cynthia Lounge is in the melodramatic situation of being in the power of a wicked Count who threatens to tell her husband about a moonlight night in Oporto.
To avert this, Lady Cynthia consents to return to him a signet ring shaped like a serpent, which originally belonged to his father. 'Give me that ring, woman', snarls the Count, 'or, by heaven, I'll expose you!'
In the subsequent fate of the Count, of Lady Cynthia's husband, and of Lady Cynthia herself, Inspector Keating - later degraded to the ranks-plays no small part.
The play opens in Lady Cynthia's Blue Boudoir.

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.
