: TOD SLAUGHTER and his FAMOUS COMPANY OF BARNSTORMERS

in 'THE CRIMES OF
BURKE AND HARE', the Body-snatchers of Edinburgh
Characters
The action passes in Edinburgh in the year 1829 at :
Swanson's Drinking House-A Street in Westport—Burke's House at Gibs Close-Dr. Knox's House at Surgeons Hall-Hare's House at Tanners Close -a Street in Westport-and Hare's House.
Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM
ORCHESTRA conducted by MARK H. LUBBOCK
See the short article on page 6.
' Burke and Hare' will be repeated in the National programme tomorrow at 8.40.
The drama of Burke and Hare, which was originally to have been broadcast in January, is based on the exploits of the famous surgeon, Dr. Knox of Edinburgh who, needing corpses for his anatomical research, took care not to inquire too closely where they came from.
The play is concerned with the macabre characters of two Irish labourers, William Burke and William Hare, who found an easy way of making money in supplying Dr. Knox at ten guineas a time-daft Jamie Wilson being the instrument of justice.
This breath-taking story, soaked in the atmosphere of the Edinburgh underworld of a hundred years ago, is just the right medium for the terrifying melodramatic intensity of Tod Slaughter and his accomplices.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
