Brigid Erin Bates as Molly Ellis * We had been walking a very long time. I saw what looked like blocks of salt but. to my horror, after a bit, I found it was snow. Every step we took I slipped back half and then they got annoyed. They produced a dagger. I was so tired. I said, " Well, get on with it then ".'
A true story of murder, kidnapping and ransom set on the North-West Frontier of India. Today, 50 years later, the two principals in that drama live in peaceful retirement here in England. With their voices and memories this strange tale has been pieced together.

' Anger makes waves. Ripples. They unsteady one. The subtle-body is disturbed, like a tree in a storm. It is bad for you. It is bad for me to watch you. You see, we do not always know why we do what we do. And sometimes we do not even know what we do.'

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.
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.
