: Saturday-Night Theatre presents Mary Ellis with Mary Morris and Clive Morton in ' IF THIS BE ERROR'

by Rachel Grieve
Adapted by Mollie Greenhalgh
Production by Norman Wright
Repeated on Monday at 4.30 (Light) Probably the most embarrassing moment in a stepmother's life is the moment when she first meets her stepchildren—especially if they are old enough to be critical and young enough to show it. So it is no wonder that on the day she arrives home from her honeymoon Dr. David Moore's second wife Caroline is just a little nervous. It is a charming house in a South Coast resort and no one could be kinder than David, a typical general practitioner in his late fifties. As a matter of fact it may not be such an ordeal after all: the doctor's son Charles is married so she may not have to see much of him, and there only remains Nina, his daughter, who more or less keeps house for him. There, of course, a little tact may be necessary, for Nina, an ardent amateur painter, is by way of being temperamental. She shows no signs of getting married. As her father says ' This place isn't good enough for Nina. and neither are the local men.' Well, tact plays its part-for the time being at any rate-but there is one rarher mysterious circumstance. Several people in the town are convinced that they have seen Caroline before and none of them at the moment can recollect where. Or perhaps they have seen her picture in the papers; but none of them can recollect in what capacity.....

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.
