A serial shocker written and told by P. Caton Baddeley
In the deserted cottage Chloe Chatoner and Derek Vane had found an idiot boy, but their friends are still missing. Chloe tries to sleep until something drops on her face-drip, drip, drip. Then a stranger bursts in, and insists that he must search the house. There is a shot, and Derek dashes out of the house. As for Chloe, she hears a bumping noise, and then a moan. Derek returns and the police arrive. ' In a case of murder, I suspect everyone', the inspector said.... This summary of what has gone before may give listeners some idea of the thrills to expect in this serial tale.
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.
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.
