Regional Programme Midland


A spy story to end spy stories by Sidney Andrews and John Bridgman with music by John Morley
Collegians, spies, etc., played by Denis Folwell , Lester Mudditt , and others
The Midland Revue Orchestra, leader Norris Stanley , conductor Reginald
Production by Martyn C. Webster
Spy stories are effectively guyed in this play. There are most of the usual ingredients, including the network of foreign agents, the capture of the hero and heroine, and their imprisonment in a cellar near the Thames where the water steadily rises. In addition there are several unusual ingredients, including the identity of the hostile power's agent-in-chief and a scene in a BBC studio during the Children's Hour!
Hugh Morton ,, who plays the hero, made a hit as Paul Temple in the two popular Midland serial thrillers. Lawrence Baskcomb , who has the part of the villain, has taken leading parts in several of the Melluish burlesques.

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.
