: Thirty-Minute Theatre: Stake Money

by Mark Lushington
[Starring] Keith Baxter as Jim Garden and George Sewell as Nicholls

Jim Garden, footballer, has reached the end of his short career. He has little money and a lot of press cuttings, and at thirty-four he's still young enough to enjoy life. But for that, he needs money. What better way of getting it than lifting the lid off football and revealing the dirt behind the profession. He meets a tough sports journalist to talk over his proposal. But what looks like a simple bit of muck-raking turns out very differently...


Writer: Mark Lushington
Script Editor: Derek Hoddinott
Designer: Derek Dodd
Producer: Innes Lloyd
Director: Eric Hills
Jim Garden: Keith Baxter
Nicholls: George Sewell
Derek: Alan Lake
Elaine Garden: Ann Mitchell

: Horizon: Music and the Mind

Horizon - Man and science today

Although in strictly scientific terms little is known about how and why music affects us, few can deny its power to elate, excite, rouse, inspire, soothe, relax.
Today, used as a therapy in the treatment of mental disorders, music plays a useful part in building up communication where none exists and in restoring communication where it has broken down. Music therapy has joined art, occupational and industrial therapy as an ancillary form of treatment. Carried out by trained musicians who have a knowledge of the disorders of the patients, it is considered by its supporters to play a valuable role in helping the mentally ill and the severely mentally handicapped.



Narrator: Christopher Chataway
Commentary: Paul Vaughan
Editor: R.W. Reid

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
