The Chequers Manoeuvre by CHARLOTTE and Denis PLIMMEB
Producer, INNES LLOYD
Directed by CHRISTOPHER BARRY
A deserted army camp somewhere in England, or so it seems until you look more closely. For there you will find four men and one woman talking. From a distance you cannot hear what they say. But you can see the guns—deadly weapons designed to kill by remote control. You move closer and you can see their faces. An interesting group ... closer still and now you can hear what is said Good morning madam and gentlemen. We are here to plan an assassination.'

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.
