The flat actually belongs to the Rt. Hon. Oliver Doyle, M.P., Minister for Trading Relations, but (this being a brisk Pertwee farce) he seldom has a moment in sole possession. Across the corridor lives Sir Dudley Stretfield, M.P., still one of Doyle's oldest and best friends, despite the fact that he sits on the Opposition benches. Stretfield is always in and out of the flat, and so is his pretty niece, Jean. The reason for her visits is the Minister's son, Squadron-Leader John Doyle. John is also the cause of a visit from Rose Mortimer, the pretty, young wife of the Inspector-General of Customs and Excise, who comes to see him about a most delicate matter. Which, of course, leads soon to visits from Montague Mortimer himself, who also happens to be one of the Minister's schoolday friends. Does this sound a trifle complicated? Be assured that it is a mere beginning of complications... (Peter Currie)

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.
