An adventure serial in four episodes
Episode 1 showed a derelict old house being used as a hideaway by three youngsters; the sudden appearance of mysterious intruders and the introduction of all sorts of mayhem ... Viewers were asked to tell us what it was all about, and the idea chosen from our postbag duly became Episode 2. Last week we again asked for your ideas for Episode 3, and tonight you can see the enactment of the idea chosen and hear the name of the person who gave it to us.
Watch tonight's episode very carefully, because we want you to tell us how to end this story-once and for all-next week. The best idea opened first will be the one used, and all ideas should be in by the second post on Wednesday. Write to: Ramshackle Road, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2LR. We'll carry on from there-next week, live!

A special television show to celebrate
Introduced by John Witty
In 1768, in London, Philip Astley gave trick riding displays, and from that small beginning modern circus grew. The riding act is still the very essence of circus and today, in a ring 42 ft. across-exactly the same size as that established by Astley 200 years ago-this tradition is continued by The Svensons
Other more recent acts, and some far older than circus itself, include:
THE WHIRLING WHEELS of the Bicycling Biasinis
SWAYING CLOWN aloft on a high, swaying lamp-post, an astonishing display of balance by Fattini
Indian elephants presented by Billy Smart Jr.
DOUBLE BACKWARD SOMERSAULT on the bouncing rope the incredible Jose Herasio
CLOWNING AROUND with piano and bagpipes the irrepressible master of mime Don Saunders
IT'S AN UPSIDE-DOWN WORLD for the hand-walking, roller-board balancing Wetdens
BUDGERIGAR CIRCUS presented by Norman Barrett
Italian brothers juggle with each other and bounce from a baby trampoline The Albertis
A swinging, smiling, dancing, riding
CHIMPANZEE Gilbert and Partner
DIVING INTO SPACE from a trapeze above the ring split-second timing is vital to The Daring Palacys
Circus direction.

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.
