: Duncan McIntyre as James Pearson Ronald Baddiley as Sam Jolly In ' SCOTSMEN'S GOLD'

A new serial in ten episodes by G. K . Saunders
Episode 3
Other parts played by Nigel Anthony and Nicholas Edmett
Violin played by Billy Miller
Production by Audrey Cameron
On the Lindis Pass gold diggings, James Pearson-a widower with two children -has opened a small store. The miners have supported him rather than Wilson, the profiteering son-in-law of Angus McNab-a merchant of Dunedin, for whom Pearson used to work. Wilson has offered to buy Pearson out, without success. He, therefore, starts a libellous campaign against Pearson's honesty. But the diggers take a man as they find him, and leave their gold with Pearson for safe-keeping. So Wiison engages a tough character to pick a quarrel with Pearson, who walks into the trap.

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.
