3—' The Duke Threatens '
Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra

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.

'THE FORTUNES OF NIGEL'

The novel by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by R. J. B. Sellar
2—' The Palace of Whitehall'
Other parts played by students of the Edinburgh College of Speech and Drama
Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
In 1603 the Crowns of Scotland and England were united, and James VI of Scotland became James I of the new realm. It was in an atmosphere of intrigue and jealousy that young Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch, found himself when he arrived from Scotland to reclaim 40,000 merks lent by his father to the King-money needed to offset a mortgage on the Glenvarloch estates.
One day Olifaunt's servant, Ritchie, was assaulted by a mob of London apprentices, but escaped into the home of Margaret Ramsay , who took an immediate interest in the story he told her of his master's plight. At Margaret's insistence, her godfather George Heriot (the King's Goldsmith and one of the most influential men in London) visited Lord Glenvarloch. Heriot took a liking to the young nobleman and went to Court on his behalf, only to find that the name of Glenvarloch made King James fly into an uncontrollable rage.

' THE FORTUNES OF NIGEL'

The novel by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by R. J. B . Sellar
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.

Gordon Jackson James McKechnie in ' THE CONSTANT STAR'

The novel by George Blake made into a radio play by John Keir Cross
Other parts played by Joan Fitzpatrick
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.






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.
