: Johnny, You're Wanted!: 5: Road Narrows

A comedy-thriller in six parts by Maurice McLoughlin.
[Starring] John Slater

Back in London after his adventurous trip to Chester, Johnny visits the Red Feather Club where Ferrari, the illusionist, and Beryl are working. One visitor to the club who verifies information Ferrari gives during his thought-transference act turns out to be the lorry driver whom Johnny saw first in Old Moore's cafe shortly before Sonia's death and, second, in his own driving mirror as he was almost forced over the railway bridge. Johnny dogs the man to a warehouse where he overhears a conversation that makes it clear that an address given by Ferrari is that of the next centre of distribution of doped cigarettes. Johnny makes a quick dash to Inspector Markham and they proceed to Johnny's home to find it ransacked and Joan (his wife) vanished

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.
