1/4. Another chance to hear four stories by John Mortimer featuring Horace Rumpole , barrister-at-law Despite scurrilous rumours to the contrary, Rumpole proves to his colleagues and clients, and to his wife, Hilda, that he has certainly not yet set forth on the primrose path to the eternal bonfire. He's very much alive and well, and as adept as ever at getting to the heart of a crime. Rumpole exposes criminal practices at the nursing home where he was sent to recuperate after a heart attack, leaving him in dire need of claret, cheroots and good company.
Director Marilyn Imrie

But one of his creations, the combined MMR shot, remains controversial in the UK to this day. His daughter Jeryl Lynn Hilleman tells his incredible Story. Producer Pauline Moffatt

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.
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.
