: The Silent People

A television play by Duncan Ross.

Brian Worth as Philip Prendergast, and Gillian Lutyens as Ann Langford
This play takes one back to 1943, only eleven years ago in fact, ages ago in spirit. For this is a story of war, with the tide of battle having begun to turn in Britain's favour but with the overwhelming flood of victory yet to come.
It is the story of Ann and Harry, he in the R.A.F., she in the F.A.N.Y., and of a group of people who work with Ann. For though she talks learnedly of the problems of charting road convoys, and though Harry (home on leave) says some mildly unpleasant things about war-work that only involves driving Brass Hats about, Ann and her companions have far bigger, tougher, and more difficult work afoot. There is an air of mystery about it all; strange terms like 'yachting' are employed; there is a London house to which strangers come and from which strangers mysteriously depart.
Ann and her sister Mary and their friends waged war in an unusual way. They are some of 'the silent people' who strove in absolute and dangerous secrecy.-E. J.

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.
