: NOVEL INTO FILM

by L. A. G. Strong
' Why can't they give us the story just as it is in the book?' That is a question people often ask when they see a film that has been made from a favourite novel. L. A. G. Strong , who has helped to make films from his own stories as well as those of other writers, endeavours to answer it.

Harry Cowley
Ever since he left the Services after the first World War, Harry Cowley has been a chimney sweep; but today, at the age of sixty-seven, many people in Brighton refer to him as ' The Governor.' He has earned this courtesy tide by being both crusader and agitator: whenever or wherever he felt an injustice was being done, Harry Cowley went into action.

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.
