: Overland Patrol: The Long Stringer

A series of stories set in the Northern Territory of Australia
Written for radio by Anthony Scott Veitch and Maurice Travers
When young Michael Dawson, the ex-London bobby now attached to Sergeant Adam Strang of the Northern Territory Police, first meets the garrulous horse-breaker, 'Stringer' Long, he emerges a little the worse for the encounter. But when 'The Stringer' returns with a tale of a lagoon on fire he unwittingly provides Adam Strang with the solution to a mystery.

Travelling Question-Master. FREDDY GRISEWOOD
Produced by Michael Bowen
From the Candie Auditorium. Guernsey
Repeated Sunday, 1.10 (Home) Listeners' views for use in Any Answers?' should be addressed to the BBC, Bristol . marked Any Answers?'

Any Questions?
THERE'S something special about a visit of Any Questions? to the Channel Islands. In the first place it needs a lot of extra ' admin,' and the,producer says he begins to appreciate how Field-Marshal Montgomery must have felt before Alamein, making sure that the right troops were in the right place at the right time. Happily it has always worked out all right in the past, though once John Arlott did look like being grounded when he should have been flying off to the Cup Final.
Another special thing about the visits of this programme to the Channel Islands is the hospitality. This begins the moment members of the team arrive and seems never to flag until their departing aircraft taxis off. Fortunately there is usually a short lull to enable them to get the programme on the air.
In the hall itself there is always a keen and stimulating audience full of good questions-including one or two that could have been thought up only in the Channel Islands-which partly explains why the programme has a unique flavour.

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.

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