: Home from the Hill

'Sometimes I sit and think', says Colonel Hilary Hook , on his verandah in the Kenya hills, 'and sometimes I just sit.' Hilary Hook , an eccentric Englishman of the old school, formerly of the Indian cavalry, then leader of extravagant safaris, has now retired. He's looked after by his butler Keperingi and a handful of servants.
Then the blow falls.
Hilary Hook 's African landlord evicts him. There's nothing for it but to return 'to my wrinkled, battered, bloody old first love - England'. He finds an unfamiliar world. He has to live in a cottage beside a supermarket car park in Wiltshire. There are problems that prove hard to solve - how to change a plug, how to open a tin. He buys thermal underwear and rather too much alcohol. It's a poignant contrast to his life abroad. 'I don't know, I might have made a grave mistake, a very grave mistake indeed....' But Hilary Hook , brave, original and funny, reacts as an old soldier should.
A touching, hilarious documentary

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.
