: The Man in the Iron Mask: 1: The Grand Design

by Alexandre Dumas
Dramatised in nine parts by Anthony Steven
The first episode in a new production for BBC Television.

Many authors carry their heroes through from adventure to adventure but few allow them to grow any older in the process. Alexandre Dumas was different. The Man in the Iron Mask concludes the many adventures of D'Artagnan and the three musketeers who are all by now middle-aged and influential. The story was built round rumours that circulated in Europe in the early part of the eighteenth century concerning the discovery of the body of 'the mysterious prisoner in an iron mask' who had been imprisoned in the Bastille late in the seventeenth century. From that point, Dumas's rich imagination took flight...

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.
