: Saturday Playhouse presents: Design for Murder

by Alex Atkinson
[Starring] Dennis Price, Maxine Audley, Patrick Allen
with Andre van Gyseghem

The setting is an empty theatre to which the principals concerned in a forthcoming production have come for an informal discussion of the sets, the costumes, and the script. But one of them, Elizabeth Carr, brings with her a letter she has received, threatening her life, and warning her that she will not leave the party alive. Since only the seven people present knew about the party in the first place, one of them must have been responsible for writing the letter. But even with only six possibles to choose from-all of whom come under suspicion during the course of the evening-viewers will be hard put to it to spot the guilty one until the very last, for although there is indeed a murder, the 'design' of the title is both clever and intricate. (R.A.)

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.

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.
