The songVivantière composed by John, Keir Cross and Alan Paul
Incidental music arranged by Marr Mackie and Alan Paul
Betrayed by his enemies and deserted by hiis friends, Beauty Cecil of the Queen's Life Guards finds himself arrested in Baden on a charge of forgery. He cannot defend himself because of two honourable promises he has made—first, to stand by his weakling brother, Berkeley; second, to keep the secret of a clandestine meeting with Beatrice, Lady Guenevere. With the help of Rake, his faithful body-servant, he escapes from his captors and disappears into the blue on Forest King, his famous grey racer. Some months later,- news of his death in a train accident reaches England; but some of his old associates still believe him to be alive somewhere, among them the Duke of Lyonnesse, who recalls that Beauty once told him that if he should ever ' smash ' he would ' go into hot service somewhere-see some good figihtin' — under another flag and ail that.'

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.
