: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the Musicians' Benevolent Fund by Myra Hess , C.B.E.
The Musicians' Benevolent Fund, a registered charity for the assistance of sick, aged, and needy members of the musical profession, has found its problems vastly aggravated by the war. Thousands of musicians who have given the best part of their lives to entertaining the public are now in dire need. The demands on the resources of the fund have been enormously increased since the outbreak of war, and already over one-third of the total funds of the Society are overdrawn.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Miss Myra Hess , C.B.E., [address removed].

: Cecil Trouncer as Lord Peter Wimsey in 'The Footsteps That Ran'

A radio play by John Cheatle, faithfully transcribed from the detective story by Dorothy L. Sayers
With J. B. Rowe as Bunter, Bryan Powley as Dr. Hartman, Philip Wade as Brotherton, Gordon MacLeod as a Policeman, Audrey Cameron as a Scream
Production by John Cheatle
As her many thousands of readers know, Dorothy L. Sayers is a detective-story writer who invariably plays fair.
In The Footsteps that Ran, as in all her other ingenious stories, all clues to the identity of the murderer, the motive of the murderer, the weapon used, and the method of detection are suggested to the reader, - or, in this case, the listener - as soon as they are to the detective himself. A novel feature of this broadcast will be that at the very climax of the story, when all the clues are there, there will be a pause in the action to enable listeners to review the evidence and to see if they can succeed in solving the problem before Lord Peter Wimsey.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
