: First House presents Derek Farr in ' RAMBLING ROSE'

A serial story in eight episodes by John Jowett
3-In which Phillip- Peerce suggests a line of enquiry and Donald follows it up
Production by Vernon Harris
Donald Ransome , a young painter who unexpectedly inherited a fortune, decided to realise a life-long ambition. From a list of recent unsolved murders he picked one at random and set out to investigate it. In Birmingham he met Ida Lampley, sister of the murdered man, and also a dancer called Delia Dawn. But his enquiries got him nowhere. On his way back to London he found himself at
Mickleford, scene of another murder. He was intrigued to discover that Delia Dawn had been the girl friend of Frame, the murdered man. Some -days later in London he met Ida Lampley again and told her his news. Her reaction was unexpected.

: SELF INTEREST AS A MOTIVE

Talk by the Rev. A. R. Vidler , D.D. The speaker is Canon and Librarian of St George's Chapel, Windsor, Editor of Theology, and co-Editor of The Frontier. He has taken part in a number of discussions in connection with the Christian
Frontier Council, and in this talk he deals with a subject that is constantly arising.
Self-interest obviously has a large place in all that we do and it is Dr. Vidler', task to examine what this place really is.

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.
