: Champion House: Breakout

by Martin Worth.
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

The Champions have a fine tradition of looking after the people who work for them. Mrs. Lloyd, for instance, has been with the Champions for seventeen years. She had been secretary to Jack, Stephen's father, and when Stephen became managing director, he inherited Mrs. Lloyd with his father's chair. She knows as much about the mill as Stephen - and nearly as much as Joe. She has always been highly efficient and utterly dependable until - one morning. And it is about that morning, what led up to it, and what followed, that is the story of the episode tonight.

This programme will be discussed in In My View next Sunday evening on BBC 1 and BBC Wales.

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.
