Series created by JOHN ELLIOT
Designer, John Hurst
Directed by ALAN GIBSON
When the gas bubble exploded in the North Sea recently, every newspaper called The Troubleshooters' office. They knew the series' reputation for forecasting events, was anything similar planned? The answer, inevitably, was: We received the script last week.' Once again Mogul got there first!
In tonight's story, however, the explosions in the Mediterranean are much bigger. And it is only the start of Mogul's headaches. While Stead copes with the international repercussions, Thornton is sailing a relief rig through a Caribbean hurricane and Izard faces trouble of a different sort in Sicily. They are all backed by some spectacular real-life film never before seen by the public.

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.
