A series of six documentary stories about a London Police Station written with the co-operation of New Scotland Yard.
On page 41, in his foreword to the series, Jan Read writes: 'You will not find Pilgrim Street listed in the telephone directory, though people who know their London will place it fairly closely. Long due for replacement, the building with its blue lamp, its old-fashioned cast iron fireplaces and polished Victorian brass, has an air of comfortable, if slightly priggish, Dickensian snugness...'
A miscellany of mischief music and mystery.
Introduced by McDonald Hobley.

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.
