by John Burke

Ronnie's party is well under way, and his mother Alice is waiting for her husband Tom to get home from the office to help keep order.

But he does know some pretty unusual and horrifying variations on children's party games...

Late Night Horror: The Bells of Hell

by Robert Aickman
Three months after their marriage Phrynne and Gerald Banstead decide to stay at the Bell Inn, an ostensibly picturesque pub in East Anglia. As they arrive the whole place seems strangely deserted - the only sound they can hear is the desolate tolling of a church bell. Mr. and Mrs. Pascoe, who run the inn, and their only other guest, Commander Shotcroft, all seem desperately frightened of something vague and indefinable.

Late Night Horror: The Kiss of Blood

Based on a short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Starring Diane Cilento and Roy Dotrice
Lady Sannox is one of the richest and most beautiful women in London. Her husband is many years her senior and is apparently quite content with the life she is leading. He seems more interested in cultivating his chrysanthemums - until Lady Sannox becomes the mistress of Douglas Stone, the eminent surgeon. Lord Sannox watches this affair, waiting to prove, perhaps, that he is not the meek, mild man his wife expects. He seeks his revenge, which is swift and terrible.

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.
