: THE LADY CRAVED EXCITEMENT'

A new adventure serial in six episodes by Edward J. Mason
2—' Rendezvous with a Corpse '
Produced by Philip Garston-Jones
David Conway , who describes himself as a reporter on the Clarion, has enlisted the aid of Patricia Manners to visit the scene of a large fire, and in a nearby side-street they discover a robbery at a jeweller's shop owned by Douglas Hardy. They are in time to follow the thieves in a van, which eventually pulls up outside the premises of Messrs. Lambourne and Beddings. While Conway keeps watch, Pat goes to telephone the police, but on her return finds that both Conway and the van have disappeared, and to her bewilderment inside Lambourne and Beddings' all knowledge of them is blandly denied. With the police, Pat returns to Hardy's shop but here again the assistant dismisses the idea that any robbery has taken place there. The police by now are convinced that she is thoroughly irresponsible. In desperation she goes to the Clarion offices, only to find that there is no David Conway on that newspaper's staff.

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.
