: THE FORTUNES OF NIGEL'

The novel by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by R. J. B . Sellar
4—' Tarnished Honour '
Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader. J. Mouland Begbie )
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
When Nigel Olifaunt, Lord Glenvarloch, arrived in London to reclaim from King James I a long-standing family debt, he found himself thwarted by powerful and secret enemies. Only one of them came out into the open-the ambitious and lordly Duke of Bucking-ham.
The young Scotsman could count on only two friends-Margaret Ramsay and, strangely enough, Lord Dalgarno, the son of a traditional rival of the Glenvarlochs. Margaret Ramsay was doubtful of Dalgarno's sincerity, and Nigel's own faith was considerably shaken when he discovered that Dalgarno was a boon companion of Buckingham's.

: FOUNDATIONS OF STRENGTH

I-Introductory talk by James Welch, D.D . People often speak of ' western values.'
Under scrutiny the words appear, at home and abroad, to be vague and meaningless. In this series of six talks a more precise definition will be sought for some of the principles which are the foundations of the Western tradition.

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.
