: Revival of ' Ingredient X '

A Play of the City, the Sea, and the Jungle
Specially written for broadcasting by L. DU GARDE PEACH
Produced by PETER CRESWELL
Listeners who heard the original broadcast of this very successful thriller in August a year ago will remember that it marked a new departure both in the technique of writing wireless plays and in the method of production. The device known as ' the fade' is used to indicate how the action of the play swings to and fro, without break or pause, between a City boardroom and a tropical forest; a tea-table in Mayfair and the engine-room of a tramp steamer meeting heavy weather near Cape Verde Islands; a laboratory in London and one of those places in the City where speculators foregather to discuss shares. In every case the focus of the action is the mysterious ingredient whose composition nobody knows, but on which the lives and fortunes of all the persons in the play depend.'
To the handful of white men engaged, with an army of natives, in extracting Ingredient X from the tropical forest, it is something that their employers in London want so badly that the natives must be worked to death, and they.
. themselves, must stake their lives in a wild gamble to get it quickly, in quantities sufficient to check the stream of urgent cables from home. To the officers of the tramp, it is a curious and perilous cargo that looks like ordinary dirt. To the directors of Synthetic Rubber Limited, it' is the life-blood of a new industry; to the analyst, it is a mystery ; to Sylvia, a rope of pearls. And to every one of them, in the end, it is Fate.
Ingredient X is a thriller-an indubitable thriller, and something more.

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.

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.
