: Old Mother Riley, Headmistress

The feature film starring
Arthur Lucan , Kitty McShane
When Daphne Snowdrop Riley inherits the laundry where she works, it seems a logical step to swap the business! What better than to acquire St Mildred's School for Girls, where daughter Kitty teaches music. But Old
Mother Riley 's career as a headmistress is - characteristically - anything but conventional.
Screenplay by JACKIE MARKS and CON WEST Produced by HARRY REYNOLDS Directed by JOHN HARLOW

If you were accused of murder by a gun-toting kangaroo court seeking vengeance would you choose a glib, fast-talking con-man by the name of Maverick as your ' lawyer '? Tom Guthrie isn't any too sure but he's got no choice - either way he's a dead man.

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.
