"THE LONG PACK."
A Dramatic Tale of Northumberland.
Characters:
Alice, Richard, Edward,. A
Stranger.
The scene of this tale is Lee- Hall in Northumberland.
Alice is left alone in charge of the house during the absence, in India, of her Master, Col. Ridley.
It is known that there is some very valuable plate in this house, and therefore Alice has instructions not to permit strangers to enter.
One winter's night a well-dressed stranger with a curiously shaped long pack called at thn house, and finding ho could not secure lodgings there for tho night asked if he might leave his pack there till the next day as it was very heavy. Alice becomes suspicious of what the pack might contain, and calls in the help of an old retainer, Richard, and a young farm hand about the place, Edward. Edward in his zeal decides the best way to prove what is in the pack is to thrust his blunderbuss, " Copenhagen '' intc it. He does so, and blood flows from the pack. They discover the body of a man inside. They put two and two together and decide that this was meant to be the prelude to a planned attack upon the house. They make preparations to withstand it. The play ends when the faithful three with the help of their neighbours repulse an attack by armed men winch takes place later that evening.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
