This week: Penelope Horner as Selwyn Jepson's Eve Gill investigates the case of The Golden Dart

(John Stride is a National Theatre player)

The strange launch which sails into Commodore Gill's private creek brings to both him and his daughter a feeling of foreboding. Apparently unaware that they are observed, the visitors come and go.
Is this a part of the Commodore's smuggling activities which he wishes to conceal? Is it, perhaps, some legacy of his past life bringing with it threat and danger? Or is it something more sinister unconnected except by accident with the life of Marsh House?
Eve Gill decides to take practical steps and find out. In so doing she becomes involved in danger and tragedy.

The last of three open debates in which students discuss in a free and uninhibited way the causes of their unrest.

This programme was recorded in Studio A at Bristol, when the students were confronted by members of the public who had written to the BBC, or telephoned, after seeing the earlier programmes.

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.
