: Dr. Who: The Mind Robber: Part 1

Dr. Who starts today a new adventure in space and time
Starring Patrick Troughton as Dr. Who
with Emrys Jones
and Frazer Hines, Wendy Padbury

The Tardis is in the path of molten lava and reluctantly the Doctor moves it, not only out of time and space, but also out of reality. The Doctor's explanation that they are 'nowhere' doesn't satisfy Zoe, but he warns her that on no account should she make any attempt to leave the ship.
Then Jamie sees on the scanner a picture of his Highland home. Zoe cannot see it. What she does see though is her home.
The Tardis crew have stumbled into a world where fiction appears as reality, where things exist only when men believe in them.
It is a world peopled with a race of monsters, the White Robots, with monsters from legend - the unicorn, the Minotaur, and the snakehaired Medusa. And with characters from fiction too, Gulliver, Rapunzel, D'Artagnan, Sir Lancelot, Cyrano de Bergerac (right, played by David Cannon)...

(Leslie Crowther is appearing in "Let Sleeping Wives Lie" at the Garrick Theatre, London; The Black and White Minstrel Show is appearing at the Victoria Palace, London, and at the Futurist Theatre, Scarborough)

The opening sequence of the show this week has a distinctly Japanese flavour. Then the many charms of the Toppers will be very much on display in a Bathing Beauty routine. In their weekly spot the Minstrels, conducted as ever by George Mitchell, will sing the beautiful Gilbert Becaud song "What now, my love." They then demonstrate their ornithological interests in a series of songs about our feathered friends, and the finale presents a good old Dixie medley.

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.
