: Comedy Playhouse presenting: B-and-B

by Michael Pertwee
Starring Bernard Braden and Barbara Kelly

The Bensons are rather worried about their son Johnny. He is eighteen and apparently has no interest at all in girls. But things are never quite what they seem to be - and young Johnny is doing all right, thank you. Tonight's Comedy Playhouse stars Bernard Braden and Barbara Kelly (in real life Mr. and Mrs. Braden) as the innocent-minded parents, and their real-life daughter Kim Braden is their daughter Sally in the show.

(Pauline Collins is appearing in "The Importance of Being Earnest" at the Haymarket Theatre, London)

: Detective: Lesson in Anatomy

A crime series.
This week: Ian Ogilvy as Michael Innes's Inspector Appleby investigates the case of the Lesson in Anatomy
Dramatised by John Gould
Also starring John Glyn-Jones, Michael Gough, Ewan Hooper, Esmond Knight

The vulture quietly sat and eyed the assembly - and after the corpse grinned two minutes passed before the lights went out. In the darkness murder was committed. Inspector Appleby, called to the scene, finds himself involved in a world of academic back-biting subtlety - a world which he faces with assurance. But he needs more than assurance to unravel this macabre case. That a re-enactment of an eighteenth-century anatomy lecture should be a yearly event in a University is strange enough-that a murderer should choose this time and place for his crime is stranger still.

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.
