Jackanory: Elidor: Thursday Street

by Alan Garner

A Manchester street-map, a deserted demolition site, a white plastic football and an empty church. Those four things led the four Watson children into another world - Elidor, a world almost destroyed by darkness and evil. Only the children could save Elidor, by guarding the four treasures they were given. But even in a quiet Manchester road, the treasures were not completely safe and strange things began to happen...

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
