: The Gnomes of Dulwich

by Jimmy Perry
[Starring] Terry Scott and Hugh Lloyd
with John Clive, Leon Thau, Anne de Vigier
and Horace James, Celia Robinson, Michael Slater, Lionel Wheeler, Gillian Phelps, Max Latimer

Big, Small, and Old are three stone gnomes who live in the front garden of No. 25 Telegraph Road. All three appear to lead such serene lives, Big fishing with his rod, Old fast asleep holding his spade, and Small feeding his frog all day. But their serenity is not all it might seem at first glance. Even stone gnomes can have trouble, trouble with the neighbours - especially when they are different.

A series which explores living memory
' What one doesn'realise today is the extraordinarily heavy rate of casualties. The young pilot always went through the stage of hoping that if he was lucky he'd get through his first month ... or two months ... or three months-without being shot down. That was where the danger occurred: raw pilots coming out fresh from England, not knowing what they were doing, hardly knowing their aeroplanes, and being thrust into battle.....' At one period during the 1914-18 war the average life of a pilot flying over the front lines was only three weeks.
Tonight's film features the personal reminiscences of two ace pilots who had the luck and skill to survive:

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.
