The novel by George Blake made into a radio play by John Keir Cross

Derek Howat , Effle Morrison
Ian McCaig and Eileen McCallum
Flute played by John Wiggins
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
This is the story of the Oliphants, Julius and Mark, and of the women they married and the children they bred. But it is also a part of Clydeside history; of the vast change-over from sail to steam, of the coming of the first train, and of the great tea-clipper races. Here, too, is the tragedy of the cholera epidemic of last century.

But he was warned by Margaret Ramsay that a new-found friend, Lord Dalgarno, was in reality one of Buckingham's lieutenants. In blind anger the young Scot challenged Dalgarno to a duel.
While Margaret Ramsay-by this time very much in love with Nigel-was trying desperately to trace him, he decided to risk all on a personal meeting with the King. One day he waylaid the monarch while the latter was hunting.

6— 'His Majesty is Alarmed '
Music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
Through the friendship of George Heriot, Lord Glenvarloch finally succeeded in gaining an audience with King James VI. But when he requested the repayment of money owed to him by the Royal Treasury, the King became frightened and finally admitted that the powerful Duke of Buckingham was set
- against the settlement of the debt.
Unskilled in the intrigues of the Court, and tricked by Lord Dalgarno, Glenvarloch committed a breach of stringent court etiquette by challenging the suave courtier to a duel.
Margaret Ramsay, Heriot's god-daughter, was horrified to hear that, as a result of the brawl, Nigel was seeking sanctuary in London's notorious Alsatia.

5— ' The Challenge '
Other parts played by Students of the Edinburgh
College of Speech and Drama Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch , found himself in the midst of intrigue and subterfuge when he arrived at the Court of King James in 1620 to reclaim a large sum of money owed to him by the King. On his recovery of the money depended the fate of the heavily mortgaged Glenvarloch estates in Scotland. Nigel soon discovered that some powerful person-probably the hostile Duke of Bucking-ham-was determined to get the estates.
The young Scot, befriended by George Heriot , the King's goldsmith, and the charming young Margaret Ramsay , was introduced to Court circles where he met Lord Dalgarno. Even when Nigel discovered that Dalgarno was one of Buckingham's circle, he did not see any danger in their acquaintanceship till a letter signed ' Ignoto ' reached him, warning him that Dalgarno was betraying his trust.

4—' Tarnished Honour '
Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader. J. Mouland Begbie )
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
When Nigel Olifaunt, Lord Glenvarloch, arrived in London to reclaim from King James I a long-standing family debt, he found himself thwarted by powerful and secret enemies. Only one of them came out into the open-the ambitious and lordly Duke of Bucking-ham.
The young Scotsman could count on only two friends-Margaret Ramsay and, strangely enough, Lord Dalgarno, the son of a traditional rival of the Glenvarlochs. Margaret Ramsay was doubtful of Dalgarno's sincerity, and Nigel's own faith was considerably shaken when he discovered that Dalgarno was a boon companion of Buckingham's.

Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
In 1620 Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch, arrived in London to reclaim a large sum of money lent by his father to King James VI of Scotland -now James I of the United Kingdom. The young and lovely Margaret Ramsay, the daughter of one of the king's Scottish retainers, took an interest in Nigel's affairs and made it possible for him to gain access to the Palace of Whitehall. There, Lord Huntinglen, an old family friend, pleaded Nigel's case with King James and got from the king a mysterious warning that Nigel should, for his own safety, leave the city immediately.






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.
