Albert Samson is a laconic, rather seedy, non-violent private detective from Indianapolis who in the month before Christmas - not a good time for private eyes - ' people try not to think about the things they hire detectives for. so they don't hire detectives'finds himself offered an apparently straightforward job. It's only when he becomes more interested in investigating his client that things become at first strange and then definitely bizarre.

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.
