Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra

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.

Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch, went to London in 1620 to reclaim a large sum of money due to his family by King James VI. Despite the friendship of George Heriot and the rather more affectionate assistance of Margaret Ramsay , the young Scot's lack of knowledge of court etiquette got him into difficulty after difficulty. In a final bid to get an audience with the King, he accosted the monarch in the Royal Park. Terrified out of his wits, the timid King Jamie shouted for assistance to the Duke of Buckingham, Nigel's sworn enemy.

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.

When Nigel Olifaunt finally secured an order for repayment of his 40,000 merks from King James, his fortunes seemed to be on the turn. 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.

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.
