The Naked Lady: Part 4


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 television play in four parts by Duncan Ross.
[Starring] Andrew Osborn, Lana Morris
with Daphne Anderson, Patrick Troughton, Robert Urquhart

The action takes place in a small fishing village on the South-West coast and in London. Time, the present.
Was it the brandy that made Sylvia Craig dive into the sea? Was Detective-Inspector Bill Burroughs right when he said 'I think we have stumbled on something'? The doctor is sceptical, and would rather analyse the brandy glass than the contents of the hot water bottle he is taking to the lab. Meanwhile Charlie Morris, who was the last to see her alive, has been charged with the murder of 'The Naked Lady'.

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.
