: SOFTLY,SOFTLY

Going Quietly by ALAN PLATER
Script editor, Arnold Yarrow Designer, David Spode
Producer, LEONARD LEWIS
Directed by BILL HAYS
Det.-Con. Box sits alone on a deserted railway platform night after night. His wife is worried by these nightly excursions which could be for the purpose of meeting an informant ... and informants can be dangerous. His col. leagues are concerned at his lack of attention to routine work ... wondering if it can be explained by a concentration on solving a series of Post Office robberies. But Box tells none of them where he goes or what he is waiting for.

A series which takes up the cause for people fighting for a fair deal
Magnus Magnusson examines
THE CASE OF THE RELUCTANT RECRUIT

Peter Reynolds , at the age of fifteen, signed a twelve-year contract with the Royal Navy. He is now nineteen, and has been trying to obtain a discharge for two years. But the Navy will not release him. Is the system of such contracts for boys fair? Or should they, as the Latey Committee recommend, be allowed second thoughts up to the age of eighteen?

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.
