: The Whole Truth

A television play by Philip Mackie.
[Starring] Griffith Jones and Sarah Lawson
The action takes place at the Paultons' home in North-West London.

A murder mystery such as this is a four-cornered battle of wits between the murderer, the law, the author, and the audience. But the ingredients may be divulged without loss of suspense: thus, in the course of one eventful evening, a number of people call at the Hampstead home of Lewis and Brenda Paulton. Lewis is a film producer, successful, charming, in his middle-thirties; Brenda is beautiful and some years younger; on the face of it, theirs is a perfectly happy marriage. But then the visitors start to call, among them the police, and life with the Paultons ceases to be tranquil. Mr. Mackie has more than one turn-and-turnabout surprise up his sleeve, so it will not do to say more about the plot, but there is a murder, and in the matter of solving it, viewers may test for themselves whether they are as observant as the Paultons' Dutch maid, Deenie.

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.
