There are some who scorn a 'best seller', but the world's choice is no mere whim; no one can write a 'best seller' at will. To people of varied tastes and character come moments of inspiration, moments when they respond to the pulse of humanity, and from them come the tunes and lyrics that set the world singing. Only the greatest men can meet the world in its most sublime moods and produce for us the classical compositions that survive. The composer of a 'best seller' need not be great in that sense, but he must be a lover, he must be in sympathy with his fellow-men.

The story of an attempted get-away by a commercial crook, and how it was frustrated by a clever girl in his office, but, as the denouement discloses, the ends of justice were not altogether served in this case.
In his office in the City, fitted with the usual safe, telephone, desks and files, Gerald Graystone sits writing.

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.
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.
