: Dancers in Mourning: Episode 2

by Margery Allingham
Adapted as a serial for television in six episodes by John Hopkins
Starring Denis Quilley, Michael Gough, Sheila Shand Gibbs with Bernard Horsfall as Albert Campion

Jimmy Sutane, the star of a new musical called The Buffer, has been the victim of an increasing number of practical jokes over the past few weeks, and he is beginning to feel the strain, especially as the jokes are more malicious than amusing. He has therefore called in Albert Campion, a friend of the author of The Buffer, William Faraday, to help to get to the bottom of these irritations. Sutane believes they must originate from a member of the cast, and accordingly he invites them all down to his country house one Sunday in order for Campion to meet them and pick up what clues he can. But, after yet another joke is played on him, Jimmy drives out to try to collect a piece of evidence, and returns with the startling news that he has killed Chloe Pye, a newcomer to the company who has already made her presence felt in this somewhat incongruous gathering....

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.

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.
