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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.
