A series of crime stories in two weekly parts by Michael Gilbert.
[Starring] Brian Wilde, Kenneth Mackintosh
with Steve Plytas, Hana Pravda
Music composed by Ron Grainer and played by the Ron Grainer Sextet

Superintendent Halcro is looking for the man who can organise large-scale 'accidental' fires at the drop of a hat. A single clue and a report from one of his undercover men put him on the track of the fire-raiser-a German-born scientist called Miller, who has a small chemist's shop in North London. Miller suspects that Mr. Johnson, who lodges next door, is taking too much interest in him. When Johnson breaks into his stockroom one night, Miller kills him in a fit of panic.

: No Wreath for the General: Episode 5

An adventure serial in six episodes by Donald Wilson.
starring William Franklyn, Lana Morris, Rona Anderson, Moray Watson, Ewan Roberts
General Campbell went to Scotland to negotiate, very irregularly, the sale of a new fuel discovery to the Millenium Oil Corporation. Caldwell, the Millenium representative, warned Campbell and his scientific collaborator, Ferguson, against the man they knew as the Rev. Murdo Aitcheson.
During Aitcheson's absence, Isobel Gilmour arrived at the inn to which he had taken Alison Campbell, and a frank talk between the two girls cleared up several misunderstandings. Aitcheson returned in time to prevent them leaving, but Alison subsequently escaped, and dropped into the arms of Roger Kenyon - to their mutual astonishment.
Last shown on October 17, 1960

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.
