8 — ' Fog of War ' with Eddie Robinson, Vivian Michaels, Albert Smedley, and Jennifer Edmonds
Produced by William Hughes
Jonathan Dakers has continued his uphill tight against the squalor and lack of social conscience in the Black Country town of Wednesford. He has successfully operated on a child suffering from diphtheria under appalling conditions in a slum dwelling, but meets obstruction when he takes the child to the local hospital. Here a monopoly has been set up by Dr. Craig, and it is this monopoly that Jonathan is determined to break with the help of his friend, John Morse.

: AIRS AND GRACES

Jack Salisbury and his Salon Orchestra with Edith Lewin (mezzo-soprano)
As the work of sorting out these documents proceeds, a good deal of new historical evidence is revealed. In this talk Lord Badeley, who was Clerk of the Parliaments until his retirement this summer, when he was created a Peer, quotes documents relating to the attainder of Katherine Howard, a letter from Elizabeth of Bohemia — the ' Winter Queen '—a letter from one of Cromwell's soldiers, and some grim documents about Titus Oates.

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.
