2—'MyBitter Enemy' followed by ' The Jewelled Glove ' (A sequel to
' The Secret of Winterstream ')
A new serial in four parts by Modwena Sedgwick
2—' On the King's Highway'
Production by Josephine Plummer
Jem is half wishing that he had never touched- the jewelled glove he found in Epping Forest. Already it has earned him a flogging from some men at the ' Robin Hood ' Inn, and but for the Tinker's timely intervention worse might have befallen him. All the same, he cannot help wondering about it and about its mysterious owner, who seems to be a man of some power and importance. Jem knows he is in danger while he still has the glove in his possession, but he is still set on discovering what lies behind the mystery.

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.
