To See How Far It Is by Alan PLATER
1: Murphy's Law
Designer, Fanny Taylor
Producer, Michael BAKEWELL
Norman Rodway Is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company
... the best thing that Mr. Plater has done. He really gives the grain of a certain lonely and desperate slice of provincial life THE Guardian In the first of this trilogy we meet Murphy, who, in his own words, is a ' humble pen-pusher in a cardboard-box factory.' Murphy is a born victim, a pathetic, yet infuriating figure who tries to liven up his life by joining tape-recording clubs, film societies, and wine-making classes. Norman Rod way's performance as Murphy was highly praised by all the critics.

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.
