: Champion House: To Bradford with love

by Derek Ingrey.
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

It is now generally accepted that not all secret agents are tall, glamorous show-girls. They are, in fact, very skilled, slightly cynical, professionals - not necessarily with any glamour at all. There are two in tonight's episode. When four Russians, allegedly members of a trade delegation, go to Bradford, M.I.5 sends a British agent to investigate He meets an old enemy and makes a new friend - Liz Champion. There is a big contract in the offing so all the Champions are interested. Sergei, the head of the delegation, is full of charm and Michele is more than interested. It so happens that Edward is in London...

: Flying Saucers

- and the people who see them
Fact or fancy?
The United States Air Force is spending half a million dollars trying to find out.
An investigation by Dr. Stephen Black.
Are people really seeing spacecraft from another planet? Or are people round the world being hallucinated on a vast and unprecedented scale?
The U.S. Air Force Consultant on this subject, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, distinguishes between the people who see Flying Saucers and those who believe in them. The believers are so wishful in their thinking they just don't need to see in order to bolster their faith. But the people who see Flying Saucers are different and, in his opinion more good might come from a study of sincere witnesses than from bothering too much about what they say they've seen.
In this extensive investigation in Britain and across the United States, Dr. Black questions a number of sincere witnesses about their very strange experiences.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
