: Detectives in Fiction: No. 2: The Incredible Theft

from the story by Agatha Christie
The second of a series of programmes dealing with detectives in fiction whose exploits have made them famous.
E. M. Stephan as 'Hercule Poirot'
Adapted and produced by Leslie Stokes

Characters: Hercule Poirot; Lord Mayfield, Minister of Armaments; Air-Marshal Sir George Carrington; Carlile, Lord Mayfield's secretary; Mrs. Vanderlyn; Lady Carrington; Reggie Carrington; Leonie, Mrs. Vanderlyn's maid.

The famous detective Hercule Poirot appeared in Agatha Christie 's first novel, "The Mysterious Affair at Styles", which she wrote (in response to a challenge) when she was working as a Red Cross nurse during the war, and is still going strong in her latest novel, "Death on the Nile". "The Incredible Theft" is a story in the volume of her stories, "Murder in the Mass."

Poirot was immortalised in the flesh by Charles Laughton in the play "Alibi". The little Belgian detective has also been featured in a radio musical play, "The Yellow Iris", and Francis Sullivan played the same part in a television show. For today's production, that popular broadcasting personality, E. M. Stephan, is taking part in a play for the first time in his life, and the part should suit him to perfection.

: 'THE ENGLISHMAN ABROAD'

Peter Fleming
Extracts from his writings read by Eric Gillett
This is the first of a new series of readings by Eric Gillett from the works of modem British, travellers. Some of the many travel books published in the last few years are among the most interesting literature of our time. This afternoon Eric Gillett will read from books in which Peter Fleming describes his adventures in two continents: ' News from Tartary ' ' Brazilian Adventure ', and 1 One's Company '. In later talks, which will be given weekly, he hopes to draw upon the work of Somerset Maugham, E. M. Delafield , Evelyn Waugh , H. M. Tomlinson , and others.

: 'THE POET AND THE PUBLIC—

Poetry and an Ordinary Reader
Humphrey Jennings
The relation of the modern poet to the vast reading public of today is the subject of examination in this new series that was introduced by Humphrey Jennings a fortnight ago. It is computed that there are about forty million people in Great Britain ; nearly all these read newspapers, many of them magazines and books, but it is not clear how many, or how few, read poetry.
Last week Humphrey Jennings discussed the poet and the public in the past. Today he and ' a man in the street' are to discuss poetry and the ordinary reader of today.

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.
