Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: The Willow House School


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 Mysterious Tale dramatised by Harry Moore.
Starring Maurice Denham
with Alan Howard
and Christopher Matthews as Monkhouse Lee

Monkhouse Lee, the aspiring young archaeologist, is just down from Oxford and needs a temporary job to keep him while he continues his archaeological research at the British Museum. School-mastering seems the obvious answer. The trouble is he's not qualified for the better prep school posts; he holds only a pass degree and, infinitely more important, he never won a blue or even a half-blue. So he's forced to accept a job at the Willow House School, a sinister establishment where assistant masters never seem to last more than a few weeks...

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.
