She arranged to move to a small hotel. Rachel Guest learned that Denby Harris had escaped from prison; she collapsed and refused to see the detectives who called on Harris's possible contacts.

: Patrick Barr and Monica Grey in 'THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS'

A serial for broadcasting in sixparts by Giles Cooper from the novel by John Wyndham
5—' World Narrowing '
Produced by Peter Watts
In the calamity of a blinded world, Bill Masen, one of the few people left with their sight, was separated from Josella Playton when the gangs raided the London University Buildings in search of sighted people to forage for them.
The breakdown of all services and the many unburied dead everywhere start a plague in London, and Bill escapes and sets out for the country to find the rest of the London University party, hoping that Josella, too, will have rejoined them.
In the West Country he finds a splinter group from the main party, but it proves to be unsatisfactory, and suddenly remembering that Josella had once mentioned friends in Sussex, he sets off across a deserted countryside, where the huge poisonous triffids seem to be the only things left alive.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
