A Hundred Years of Humphrey Hastings or Life with a Practical Father
Written by Richard Wade.
Starring Dudley Foster as Humphrey Hastings, Frances Bennett as Emily Hastings
Almost every aspect of practical science over the last hundred years finds its way at one time or another into the Hastings household. The results are not always what we might expect - very rarely what the Hastings family expects. Only Humphrey himself remains unabashed by the events which take place in his ordinary looking house in Twickenham.

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.
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.
