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.

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.
