A Portrait of my Aunt by Frederick Oughton
In that back street of terraced houses in Birmingham they thought of her as a sublime combination of Dr. Barnardo, the R.S.P.C.A., a free lawyer, and their universal provider in time of need. As a matter of fact, she was a professional money lender.

' The Mystine Mutation'
A new adventure of Professor Mallory
Written for broadcasting in six episodes by Marjorie Wynn-Williams
5 — 'The Search'
Production by Lorraine Davies
Professor Mallory and his friends have found that the missing research student, Lee Cantrill, has been secretly experimenting with Mystine, a new narcotic drug which also acts as a growth promoter. However, from a bundle of papers written in Spanish Mallory learns that Mystine was actually discovered by a South American scientist more than ten years ago. Greatly interested in Cantrill's experiments is a certain Dr. Zeist; also Milo de Rivas, another research worker. And when the existence of a tribe of double-sized rats proves that the increased growth can be inherited, the Professor suddenly realises that Mystine has the most alarming possibilities.

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.
