Script by Robert Turley
Produced by Betty Davies and Eileen Cullen
Laurena Mary left and the Owens started packing up in Wales. Vicky told David that Kate had become engaged. Rosie Sheans annoyed everyone in Parkwood Hill by getting her picture in a newspaper. Sally enjoyed herself in the Bahamas but felt some constraint between herself and Richard. Richard wrote and offered Clare House to the Owens.

: TRUE STORY

Trouble in Turmoil Five with Bernard Braden
Written by Bob Kesten
In 1956, thirty-three-year-old Flight Lieutenant Barton of the R.A.F., serving a two-year exchange posting with American Strategic Air Command, was flying a giant strato-tanker high above northern Greenland, refuelling a B-52 bomber. The pipe coupling broke, and high octane petrol sprayed into the aircraft at the rate of fifty gallons a minute. In seconds, a pool had formed in the tail over its electrical nerve centre. The crew were now in immense danger. The tiniest spark vould blow the aircraft to pieces.

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.
