A serial story in eight episodes by John Jowett
6—'In which Donald's position is seriously compromised '
Production by Vernon Harris
Donald Ransome, a young artist who set out to solve a murder, soon found himself involved in a whole series of killings, all connected by the fact that each victim had at some time been friendly with the same woman, a dancer named Rose Blaker. The more Donald saw of Rose, the more attracted he was. Before long he realised that her husband was madly jealous of her. This fact prompted Donald to question Rose closely about her husband's movements on the dates of the murders, and later the same even:ng he reported the results of his enquiries to his friend Phillip Peerce.

A series of six talks by Bertrand Russell , o.M.
3-The Modern Mastery of Nature
Obstacles to human welfare, says Bertrand Russell , have resulted from three kinds of conflict-between man and nature, between man and man, and between man and himself. In this talk he comments on the result of the first conflxt, and the extent to which progress in scientific research and techniques has given us a control over the externa] world adequate, if we fully exploited it, to ensure the happiness of humanity.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
