: Not in Front of the Children: The Iron Hand

by Richard Waring
Starring Wendy Craig as Jennifer Corner, Ronald Hines as Henry Corner
with Charlotte Mitchell as Mary

The three young Corners have been misbehaving again and Jennifer says that she is going to complain to their father. Henry, however, is a little reluctant to come down too heavily on the children as his birthday is imminent and last year at this time a bout of discipline had resulted in a very 'token' present indeed.

: The Troubleshooters: It's a Very Bad Day for Travelling

by Anthony Read
[Starring] Ray Barrett
Guest stars, Maurice Denham, Saeed Jaffrey, Marne Maitland, Zienia Merton

'I used to think,' says Thornton, 'that once you got to be a real big shot, a director of the company, your problems would be over. Believe me-they're not.'
An important contract can be won in Ceylon. But Mogul's manager there, Henry Burton, does not seem to be trying. Thornton is on his own. He must not only find out why but also take the decisions needed to put things right. Including, if necessary, sacking Burton. His investigations give him an insight into the ways of the country and plenty of surprises-including a powerful astrologer.
Location filming for this episode was shot in Ceylon, where the unit had to dodge a late monsoon. Other local hazards included elephants wandering across the road -not the easiest of animals for a fast car to miss! And the famed dancers of Kandy performed for the cameras at 7.0 a.m., surely the earliest show they have ever given.
This story brings to Mogul, for the first time, guest star Maurice Denham-whose credits in every medium are too many to list here. But for Zienia Merton, who plays the beautiful Liane, even the world of Mogul must seem tame after her last assignment-seducing Gregory Peck in the forthcoming 20th Century-Fox film The Chairman.

: Made in Britain

What do we make - what will they buy?
Spotlight on the export drive: new ideas - new products - new markets

America had its first glimpse of a Rolls Royce car in 1906 when The Hon. Charles Rolls won a five mile race at New York's Empire City Track. From then on the car became almost a legend, not only in the United States but throughout the world. A quarter of all Rolls Royce cars made today are exported to America. But just how 'easy' is it selling an extremely expensive car in a relatively opulent market?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
