Puppets make grand television material, and this afternoon a new troupe makes its debut. There are two points of interest about it: the figures are exceptionally small, some being no more than seven inches in height; and Francis Redvers manipulates them by himself, despite the fact that in one scene more than half a dozen puppets are on the stage at the same time.
Jan Bussell, an expert on puppets himself (viewers have seen his Hogarth troupe several times), will be in the control room.
A 'Telecrime' by Mileson Horton.
with J. B. Rowe, Eric Maturin, Franklyn Bellamy, Bryan Powley, Frank Foster, Edmund Phelps.
Viewers will be given sufficient evidence to enable them to solve the problem that confronts Inspector Holt.

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.
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.
