: REPRIMAND THE GARDENER

by Ernest Atkinson
During his ten months' enforced stay on the island of Elba, Napoleon Bonaparte had six separate habitations. He was able to indulge his passion for building and redecorating-and also for parsimony. A gardener who employs too many helping hands and who wants to buy turves when grass seed will do must be severely dealt with. Ernest Atkinson , who visited Elba recently, describes some of the houses and gardens designed by Napoleon.

An adventure in six episodes by Marjorie Wynn-Williams
6-End of the Experiment
Production by Lorraine Davies
Professor Mallory is now convinced that ' Mystine,' the new narcotic drug which also acts as a growth promoter, is a scientific discovery of international importance. The suspected foreign agent, Dr. Zeist, claims that Lee Cantrill agreed to sell him the Mystine research data, but Milo de Rivas insists that Cantrill stole the information from his uncle, Manuel de Rivas-the real discoverer. However, it appears that the problem is to be solved at last, for Mallory and his friends come across the missing Cantrill, lying exhausted in a ruined cottage.

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.
