: Dr. Who: Temple of Secrets

by Donald Cotton.
An adventure in space and time.
Starring William Hartnell as Dr. Who and Maureen O'Brien, Peter Purves

Doctor Who and the Trojan War
BBC1 5.50
The time and space voyagers in the good ship Tardis come down to Mother Earth for their latest adventure - but to a world as remote from our own as any distant planet. The place where the vessel materialises this time is nowadays a not-very-exciting plain in Asia Minor; but it was not always so. Once, some thousands of years ago, it witnessed the most famous clash of arms ever sung by a poet: the Trojan War.
It is into this heroic age the Dr. Who and his companions are thrust in their latest adventure, which has been written by Donald Cotton. There are four episodes in the story, and the first of these sees them emerging from Tardis on to a sandy scrub-strewn plain. Near their landing place, an epic duel is in progress; the contestants are Achilles, champion among the Greek attackers, and Hector, the loud-boasting Trojan.
As curious as ever, the Doctor intervenes to check his position. His appearance abruptly decides the outcome of the fight. But it also does something more, for as a result he is hailed by Achilles as Almighty Zeus, come from Olympus to aid the Greek cause. From then on the Doctor and his friends find themselves becoming more and more a part of the great legend.
In this action-filled but not too serious tale, the part of King Priam of Troy is played by the distinguished actor and revue artist Max Adrian, while Paris - seen here as a character gone somewhat to seed in the years that have passed since he started the whole business by making off with Helen - is played by Barrie Ingham.

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.
