A Western series starring Ty Hardin as Bronco Layne the roving cowboy adventurer.

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

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....

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.
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.
