' Conspiracy in the Midlands'

The Story of the Gunpowder Plot
Dramatised by F. R. BUCKLEY
The cast includes
STANLEY ILLESLEY, HUGH MORTON , CYRIL WRIGHT , CEDRIC JOHNSON , WORTLEY ALLEN , GODFREY BASELEY ,
STUART VINDEN , WILLIAM HUGHES
Produced by OWEN REED
Many of the important episodes in the Gunpowder Plot were associated with the Midlands. It was the severe laws against Catholics that induced Catesby, who was a Northamptonshire man, and other Catholics living in the Midlands, to formulate the plot. A number of the conspirators meeting at Huddington, near Droitwich, received the news that the plot was discovered, and fled north. They made their last stand at Holbeche House, near Himley, and it was from there that most of the episodes in F. R. Buckley 's play were relayed last Guy Fawkes day.
The author is Cinema Critic of the Birmingham Despatch, has written several novels; and won the 0. Henry prize for short stories in America.

Written by Patrick Impey in consultation with P. L. Krohn and J. T. Eayrs

This programme shows how individual animals and species differ temperamentally, and how temperament is a manifestation of the driving forces of hunger, self-protection, and sex. The speakers consider the study of temperamental differences through the concept of dominance or aggression between animals, and discuss their causes and their, relation to temperament in man himself.

Written by Patrick Impey in consultation with the late
Dr. D. A. Hanson
Cast:
The work of various scientists is quoted or explained by Edward Brandon. F. R. Buckley , John Chandos , J. Hubert Leslie , and Paul Martin
Animals are equipped with a rudimentary instinctive intelligence as soon as they are born, but they can also learn. How do they learn? Research through psychology reveals learning by trial and error; physiological research, 'the theory of automatic learning by habit, the conditioned reflex. The theory of ‘insight ’ is discussed, and the mentality of apes considered—for example the use by chimpanzees of symbolism, language, and token money.

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.
