World University Service (formerly known as ' International Student Service ') was formed in 1920 to assist. students and lecturers in need. With headquarters in Geneva, and with national committees in nearly forty countries, the Service, which is dependent entirely on voluntary contributions, now raises and spends about £ 450,000 each year.
Help is given in Britain and abroad to tuberculous and refugee students and lecturers, and financial aid is granted to students of suitable ability who encounter unforeseen hardships. In war-devastated and under-developed countries World University Service provides food, clothing, medicines, and text-books to needy students.

: ' THE FORTUNES OF NIGEL'

The novel by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by R. J. B. Sellar
8 — ' The Clouds Disperse '
. Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch, went to London in 1620 to reclaim a large sum of money due to his family by King James VI. Despite the friendship of George Heriot and the rather more affectionate assistance of Margaret Ramsay , the young Scot's lack of knowledge of court etiquette got him into difficulty after difficulty. In a final bid to get an audience with the King, he accosted the monarch in the Royal Park. Terrified out of his wits, the timid King Jamie shouted for assistance to the Duke of Buckingham, Nigel's sworn enemy.

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.
