: Alec Clunes in 'THE ISLAND OF SHEEP'

by John Buchan
Adapted as a serial play in six parts by Felix Felton
1—' The Jade Tablet'
Produced by David Davis
A few years have passed since those earlier adventures of Richard Hannay 's such as ' The Thirty-Nine Steps ' and ' Greenmantle.' You must think of him now as a Member of Parliament, and as the father of a boy of fourteen. His son's name is Peter John , and this is just as much his son's adventure as his own.
It began with a chance meeting that set his mind working on unusual lines, and so prepared him for what was ahead. At the time, it seemed like anything but the beginning of a new adventure, but, looking back, it became clear that the starting point really was that October evening when he caught his train home from Victoria.....

Mr. Melville and Ned Beecham wished to follow her at once, for at Avon St. Mary was the last of the three houses in which Shakespeare's poem might be hidden; But Rodney-of all people! — delayed their departure with one excuse after another, and several days passed before they all piled into the yellow curricle with scarlet wheels and set off at Rodney's usual break-neck gallop through the lanes ...'

: SNAKES' KIN

Talk by Martin Hotine
It stands to reason that anyone coming back to this Earth wants to pass unnoticed. In London they mingle with the crowds and go home every night to a nice respectable cemetery in the suburbs. Here in Africa what more natural than that they should appear as snakes?'
That was what the lone white settler said and, after rhe incident of the Vanishing Python, Brigadier Hotine wasn't quite sure there mightn't be something m it.

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.
