Mrs. Pichin is at her wits' end! Her husband lies groaning on the bed, and she is quite sure that he, having tasted of the fruits of idleness during the recent strikes, has been lured into invalidism by the prospect of a few lazy weeks at home. A neighbour intervenes, views the sufferer with alarming sympathy, and begins a novel cure, in the course of which Mr. Pinchin begins to feel that there is no royal road to a stolen holiday.

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.
