: TRAVELLERS' TALES TEMPLES AND MUSIC

told by Frank Duncan
In 1963, Ralph Izzard , one-time journalist and traveller in India, returned to Madras. From there he visited the Holy places and magnificent Hindu temples of the South, where the earliest known inhabitants of the country-the Dravidians-took refuge from the invaders from the North. In that region, their ancient culture, with its traditions of dance and music over 2,000 years old, has been preserved almost intact.

Counterfeit half-crowns are flooding Newtown. They are pretty convincing at a casual glance. Detective-Constable Kane is one of the first to come across a dud when his sister finds one in her handbag.
Blind Wol , the match-seller, is also given a dud, and it is his ' description ' of the person who gave it to him that eventually leads Sgt. Stone to the culprit.

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.
