A play by Charles Eric Maine.

Many writers have been fascinated by the idea of time and the pricks it can play. Very few of us understand the Fourth Dimension-to say nothing of the Fifth and Sixth-but most of us have an uneasy feeling that there is a great deal more to time than just yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
In this short play Charles Eric Maine has hit on an exciting and original variation on the theme. One of his characters, John Mallory, has died, but has been brought to life again by an adrenalin injection. Everything about him is now normal except chat his time-sense is out of synchronisation by 4.7 seconds. He understands what is said to him and replies lucidly to questions-4.7 seconds before they have been put to him.
Dr. Slade, a hospital psychiatrist, becomes interested in Mallory's case and determines to cure him. After consultation with an eminent physicist friend of his, George Ingram, he decides on the desperate and, to say the least of it, medically unorthodox step of smothering his patient with a pillow, killing him, and bringing him to life again with a more carefully administered injection of adrenalin.

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.

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.
