: SOFTLY, SOFTLY

Five Pair o' Hands by ALLAN PRIOR
Script editor. Arnold Yarrow Designer, Barry Newbery Producer, LEONARD LEWIS
Directed by PAUL CIAPPESSONI
The five pairs of hands of the Nevin family provide them with an easy living, and an exhilarating —if dangerous-way of life. When this quintet of rogues makes an excursion into the Wyvern Region, their activities soon come to the notice of the Crime Squad. Allin and Digby interview some exasperating witnesses. Barlow squeezes a hint from an unusual informant. And Barlow's intervention at the moment of the Nevins' celebrating their success leads to a dramatic climax.

: PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

Its much the hardest thing I've ever faced-much the hardest.
Colin Morris talks to
Mrs. Douglas Ritchie on the central problems of being a widow
With them in the studio are:
Geoffrey Gorer , social anthropologist; Mrs. Ann Goossens , hotel receptionist; Mrs. Eileen Welch , housewife; Miss Daphne Padell , advertising executive and broadcaster; John Keeling , plastics technician
Produced by BRIDGET WINTER
Mrs. Ritchie discusses the adjustments she has had to make to her life since her husband died six months ago. She feels as though she has suffered some sort of amputation by the loss; is very much diminished as a person, and is finding the loneliness very hard to cope with. She recounts her present needs, hopes, and apprehensions, and these are commented upon in the studio by others who have faced a similar situation.

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.
