Hetty Wainthropp Investigates
9.30pm BBCl
Patricia Routledge returns for a welcome fourth series as the private eye with a fine eye for a floral frock. Hetty and husband Robert have scarcely unpacked after their Australian jaunt and she's already telling her sidekick Geoffrey that she's raring to go. With his girlfriend Janet much in evidence, the detective work seems to be growing into a kind of family business. It's appropriate, for Hetty's main aim is not so much solving mysteries as helping people.
This week her chief concern is a widow, played by Lesley Dunlop, whose husband died at the Cumbrian iron-ore mine where he worked. Hetty's attempts to recover his missing journal dig up some festering suspicions among the miners over valuable minerals.

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.
