: Tales from Europe: Here Comes Peter

A film series from Sweden.

Peter, the nine-year-old Swedish boy whom you saw a little while ago, is back. You'll remember that Peter's father had to take a job away from home, and Peter was sent to stay on the farm where his cousins Anders and Anna Maja lived. At first he was unhappy, but he soon settled down. One day Peter goes with Gustav, his uncle, Anders, and Anna Maja to mill some grain. The children discover the mill-race and then something happens that makes Anders think Peter is sadly lacking in some of the basic skills of country life. The story-teller is Tony Bilbow.

: The Newcomers

From the Midlands
(For cast list see page 53)

The first meeting of the Angleton Preservation Society has taken place, and the opposition to the proposed eastern route for the by-pass is growing. Sydney Huxle, now doing very nicely with his strip cartoon venture, has received his first big cheques. Feeling 'flush', he has taken a new flat and has bought lots of new furniture for it, and Margot Kerr is helping him move in. Her sister Kirsty is due home for the Easter holidays. And today Jimmy Harker meets a group of new, though not altogether desirable friends, who are going to be around for quite a while to come...

: Champion House: Guilt

by Max Marquis.
Champion House Back Tonight. A new series of thirteen.
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

In the Champion family, conflict is inevitable. Tensions and undercurrents exist all the time. And yet they have, although they rarely mention it, a deep affection for one another. When one of them needs help, the other Champions close ranks in defence.
Tonight's story tells of just such an occasion. There never was a greater need for the Champions to unite. One of them is on trial - charged with manslaughter. The case looks black and nobody can be optimistic about the verdict.
It all started at the Mill's annual dance...

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.
