Critical Path by ROBERT BARR with Script editor, Arnold Yarrow Designer, Barry Newbery
Producer, LEONARD LEWIS
Directed by VERE LORRIMIER
When three habitual criminals meet to study a diagram it's not likely that they are interested in central heating or Plumbing ... unless it is in some way connected with the planning of a crime. Barlow acquires a copy of such a diagram, but without a key to indicate what it represents, or what the crime is, or where it is going to take place. Gilbert believes he can provide that key.

: Viewpoint: For Final Glory

Richard Holloway is a priest of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Over the last ten years, he has engaged in active protest against slum landlords, corrupt democracy, and the Bomb.
Now, at the age of thirty-five, he is revising his ideas about the social hopes of Christianity. Is this a personal failure of nerve or a major clue to the danger of selling the Gospel cheap? Richard Holloway speaks to Hugh Cochrane

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.
