: Wideawake: 1: Trouble near Lincolns Inn

A serial in six parts by Michael Gilbert.
[Starring] Jill Adams and Terence Alexander

A New serial at 7.30
Wideawake was one of the most difficult prisoners that Dartmoor, and later Duxford Convict Establishment, could remember. He was not violent - with one memorable exception, when after serving the full twelve years of his sentence for jewel robbery and assault he had walked straight out of prison and, on the very first evening of his release, waylaid and stabbed a warder who (he said) had victimised him. This foolhardy gesture got him an immediate further sentence of eight years' imprisonment. The fact was that Wideawake was uncanny. He was an educated man, who had been a solicitor's clerk; he had 'advanced' political views, which he was not afraid of expressing; and he scarcely ever slept (hence his prison name). And since Wideawake - or Frank Stayman, to give him his real name - was the only man who knew where the loot of his greatest robbery - seven priceless, matching diamonds - lay hidden, it was clear that when he did finally emerge from prison some very unexpected wheels were likely to start turning.

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.
