A Traveller's Tale by Christopher Sykes
Produced by W. P. Rilla
Immediately after the war Christopher Sykes visited a remote French village to thank the inhabitants for their help to British officers during the German Occupation. But there was a mystery about the place. What was the reason for the suspicion of the villagers? What was the story behind the beautiful old chateau and its aged, dilapidated Count? Why, finally, had the French authorities vetoed the conferring of the King's Medal for Courage on one of the inhabitants? In the attempt to find the answers to these questions this curious and remote comer of France springs to life with all its contradictions, its passions, loyalties, and superstitions; its age-old way of living and thinking.

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.
