: Champion House: If I Were the Marrying Kind

by Derek Ingrey
Starring Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, James Kerry

It was all Joe's fault. He had insisted that Edward should go in his place to a Rugby match at Manchester. He would never have insisted if he had known the consequences. It so happens that Edward runs into an old friend, George Cullen, whom he has not seen for ten years. It is an occasion - and they celebrate it. It is a good celebration - and Edward finds himself the centre of a scandal that could rock the chimneys of Champion Mills. Although happily married, Edward can never quite live down his old reputation - and the girl was definitely very attractive.

: At A Time Like This: A Life of Her Own: 3: Beyond Those Four Walls

Finding and moving into a flat of one's own is a problem for anyone. For severely disabled Pamela La Fane, who has spent twenty-five years in a geriatric hospital, the problem is not only to find the flat; to be equipped with mechanical aids; but to find a companion. In this, the last of a three-part enquiry into the problems of Pamela, one of the 3,000 young chronic sick in this country, we examine this stage of her quest for independence.

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.
