"The Island in the Mist", No. 7
"Chang Li's Signal" by Franklyn Kelsey
Armitage's two sons, Dick and John, have been kidnapped by Chang Li.
Armitage and his friends set out in frenzied pursuit, helped by a large party of deer-stalkers and ghillies from a neighbouring castle. All day long and far into the night they search, and they are on the point of giving up when several of the party see a flash of light from a near-by hill-top. They close in on the spot, and discover Chang Li.
Chang Li is quite unperturbed by their threats and threatens in his turn to kill the two boys if anybody moves a hand against him. At this point, Nuraddin arrives in the airship and the situation looks blacker than ever.
Once again, however, our old friends Shorty and Conky take a hand in the game, with surprising results for Chang Li and Nuraddin.

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.
