The Final Solution by CAREY BLYTON
Read by Fraser Kerr
He had been walking deeper and deeper into the forest for over an hour. The deer trail he had been following had finally petered out. He suddenly found himself in a small clearing, across it lay the massive trunk of a fallen tree. It seemed as good a place as any for what he had to do.

Well over half-a-million men in Britain are Free-masons, meeting in 'lodges' in almost every town in the country, and subscribing to vows of total secrecy about the rituals and ceremonials that are the movement's most distinctive feature. Largely because of this secrecy, all kinds of extravagant accusations are made about the Masons - that they dominate the nation's business life, or that they conspire together to manipulate local politics or commerce.
Robert Foxcroft looks at the masonic movement in Britain today, and in particular examines the widely held myths about its activities. Is it a religion, as some think, or a secret society, or merely a rather well-heeled social club? What is the attraction that keeps so many men 'on the square'?

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.
