Sorry it’s a bit late. I’ve been visiting friends and relations, and I’m not very good at typing drunk, OK I’m worse than normal  :wink: . All stuff is broadcast in September 2003, just in case you did not know.  :wink:


Old style radio.

BBC Radio 4.

Monday 22nd

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Afternoon Play: Occasional Swim. After the death of her son and the end of her marriage Rosa is amazed she is falling for Colm, but what lurks in his past. To be honest this could be anything, straight love story, alien from space, re-incarnated son, or husband in disguise. The blurb gives it a darker feeling, though.

Tuesday 23rd

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Afternoon Play: My Computer Told Me to Do It. A virtual reality computer is used to play out fantasies, only they don’t stay there. The blurb reads more like comedy; you don’t get this problem with TV schedules do you.

Here is the weekly radio bit. Sorry about The Old Dark House, a victim of hype. They did not put the work in on the story  :( . Nice use of technology. Lets face it, can’t you trust the blurb  :evil: . Last Monday’s Occasional swim was a love story though the blurb made it sound like there was an evil secret, especially when you saw the accompanying picture. My Computer Told Me To Do It? Was as expected a comedy with fantasy elements.

BBC Radio 4.

Thursday 2 October.

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. Find Me. Sci-Fi black comedy. A woman goes to Oz in a matter-transporter but something goes wrong.

BBC Radio 7.

 :arrow: 6 pm and repeat midnight. The Seventh Dimension. Tales of the Bizarre by ray Bradbury.

Oneword.

 And hidden in last week’s stuff was  :arrow: Frankenstein  :roll: , a reading this time. Friday 26th September some time 9.30 am and 11.30 am, not at 9.30. Do people want us to listen? The rest of Frankenstein Parts 2 and 3 starts at 9.30 am (repeat midnight) on Monday (29th) and Tuesday (30th).

Saturday 27th September.

 :arrow: 6 pm and repeat 5 am and again at 5 am the following day. The Treasure of Sierra Madre starring Humphrey Bogart.

Sunday 28th September. Vol. 1 ep. 1.

Thursday 3rd October.  Vol. 2 ep. 3 followed by Barracuda 945 (Whatever that is).

Oh I do love radio schedules. With its cryptic or non-existent blurb and its philosophical outlook about time. That is when they don’t hide things or just get it wrong.  :wink:

You all know how much I love the listings. Well here’s another reason why I’m smitten with them, because of errors in some listing or omissions I put here another update.

Mark Twain Stories are actually 2 tales. 'Cannibalism in the Cars', is on Thursday and on Friday the tale is  'A Ghost Story'. Of course this maybe the other way round.

Ghost Stories are on at 6.45pm, as well as the other times.

Here’s a little more information on Thursday and Friday’s Thriller. Craig Warner's two-part dramatisation of Patricia Highsmith's Strangers on a Train starring Anton Lesser, Michael Sheen, Saskia Reeves and Bill Nighy. This was Highsmith's first novel and the source for Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1953 film. Strangers on a Train tells the story of a chance meeting for two men aboard a train, the pact they make and the grim reality that ensues.

Never sure if I should put in things like:
 :arrow: John Mortimer Presents Sensational British Trials, which continues it’s run next week and covers such infamous crimes as The Case of the Liverpool Poisoner. It runs next Monday to Friday at 1.30 pm and repeated at 8.30 pm. (2 - 6/6.); or like:
 :arrow: Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen's gothic satire, tells the story of the troubled romance between Catherine Morland and Henry Tilney. It is read by Juliet Stevenson and directed by the late Pat McLoughlin. Its on from Monday to Friday at 9.15 am and repeated 6.45 pm and 12.45 am (The following morning).

Ok children just in time for the weekend here is the what’s on

On the old fashioned analogue we have:

BBC Radio 4

Sunday 9th November.

 :arrow: 2.45 pm. Clever Trees. Documentary. Weird trees and trees that changed history.

Monday 10th to Friday 14th November.

 :arrow: 10.45 pm. A book at Bedtime: The Riddle of the Sands. Not horror or fantasy, but a wonderful old ripping yarn read by Christopher Bonham-Carter. Sorry but I just love this stuff.

Thursday 13h November.

 :arrow: 11.30 am. Gothic Quest: Madness, Murder and Monsters in the Lab. (1/2.) What does gothic really mean?

 :arrow: 11 pm. The Rapid Eye Movement. (5/6.). Bed Boy Buddy. Chester is in a coma and that means he gets to meat the REM theatre players.

On new sound on the block DAB (digital is sent in blocks…errrr, I’ll get my coat.)

BBC Radio 7.

Saturday 8th November.

 :arrow: 1 pm repeat 2 am. Sea Wolf by Jack London. (4/4.) The end is nigh.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: The Twilight Zone: A Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room. (5/20.) What is it he sees in the mirror? Starring Adam Baldwin (How many Baldwins are there?) Right this is the 5th episode; don’t let anyone tell you differently.

 :arrow: 6.40 pm repeat 12.40 am. The 7th Dimension: The Quatermass Memoirs. Docudrama by Nigel Kneale. (5/5.)

Sunday 2nd November.

 :arrow: 8 am repeat 9 pm. The Moonstone. (2/6.). The first detective story? This has all the staples of Victorian melodrama that influences the mad old British horror films.

 :arrow: 9 am repeat 10 pm.  Jamaica Inn (1/4) Mary Yellan arrives at Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor where she meets her uncle and begins to form suspicions of his terrible trade. Don’t you just love this sort of thing?

 :arrow: 1 pm repeat 2 am. The Lake. Childhood memories and perhaps something more sinister continue to draw Ben Wheeler back to a lake. Sorry this is all the info. I can glean on this.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: Journey Into Space: The Red Planet. (11/20).

 :arrow: 6.30 pm repeat 12.30 am. The 7th Dimension: Fear on Four: Life Line. Is that the voice of Belinda, poor departed Belinda?

Monday 10th November.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: The Heart of Hark’un. Fantasy. Final part.

Tuesday 11th to Friday 14th November.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: Aliens in the Mind. 2 strangers appear on an island after the death of the doctor, but is it his death or a possible mutation on the island that brings them? Starring Peter Cushing and Vincent Price.

Oneword. I think there is a conspiracy about the Oneword listings, and a lot of it is down to Oneword who leave big gaps in their schedule. So if you are sitting quietly I'll begin to SCREAM. AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH. That’s better.

Sunday 9th November.

 :arrow: 7 pm. Vintage Radio. The Seven Keys to Baldgate, featuring Cecil B. DeMille. Right, the film was The Seven Keys to Baldpate (unless the listings miss spelt it) based on Earl Derr Biggers’ book. The House of Long Shadows is the horror variation.

 :arrow: 11.30 pm Vintage Radio. The Judas Clock. In this Inner Sanctum episode a clock will only work if it is weighted with 30 pieces of silver and then…. This appears in 3 listings.

Friday 14th November.

 :arrow: 4 pm repeat 5 am. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. (1/7.)

Tuesday 11th November

 :arrow: 8.30 pm Vintage Radio. Requiem. This only appears in Oneword digiguide listings.

Wednesday 12th November.

 :arrow: 11.30 pm Vintage Radio. The Judas Clock 1 listing only or Requiem. 2 out of 3 listings prefer Requiem.

The stories marked in blue I think are true. Good grief this stuff is ruff on the mind, and most unkind. Help me please, I can’t take it any more.

This was to be posted earlier, but I went to the pub instead. Sorry bit you do need priorities in this world.

Snap, crackle and talk, we have plenty new for you:

BBC Radio 3.

Sunday 16th November.

 :arrow: 8 pm. Drama on 3: Confessions of a Justified Sinner. James Hogg brings religion, murder and a doppelganger to the airwaves. The version is produced in the form of a documentary; interviews are interlaced with the taped confession of the murderer. This sounds good, and will appear on listen again if you miss it.


BBC Radio 4

Monday 17th November.

 :arrow: 11.30 am. The 6 Mothers-in-law of King Henry VIII. Comedy, it just sounds like horror. (1/9.).

Monday 17th to Friday 21st November.

 :arrow: 10.45 pm. A book at Bedtime: The Riddle of the Sands. Not horror or fantasy, but a wonderful old ripping yarn read by Christopher Bonham-Carter. The last 5 parts this week.

Tuesday 18th November.

 :arrow: 9.30 am. Blood is Thicker Than Water. A documentary on blood. I thought this would be appropriate. Did you know there are over 100 blood groups with more being discovered all the time?

Thursday 20th November.

 :arrow: 11.30 am. Gothic Quest: Graveyards, Glamour and Celluloid Ghosts. (2/2.) The search for the Gothic meaning goes on.

 :arrow: 11 pm. The Rapid Eye Movement. (6/6.). Coma Love. Chester has an idea, which slips through the door to his unconsciousness and appears as a baby to his REM theatre players.

Sunday 16th November.

 :arrow: 8 am repeat 9 pm. The Moonstone. (3/6.). This has all the staples of Victorian melodrama that influences the mad old British horror films. Who has the stone now?

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: Journey Into Space: The Red Planet. (12/20). What has the travelling light been up to?

Well I’m back from FantasyCon and I’ve just about recovered. Hope you like the listing this week and hopefully I’ve not missed anything.

On MONDAY at 3.30pm  there was a tale Curly Tales: The Proceeding of That Night. A nice take on the MR James radio tale. If you go to the Radio 4 site use the Listen Again feature to hear it until Sunday. Cheers for 'Lurker' pointing this out.


In the wrinkly corner we have:

BBC Radio 2.

Friday 5th December.

 :arrow: 9.15 pm. The Hound of the Baskervilles. (2/8.) Hugh Laurie reads this old Holmes tale. (Note the old sleuth is also lurking on other DAB networks, in fact even this very tale.)

BBC Radio 4

Sunday 30th November.

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Classic Serial: The Midwich Cuckoos. All the women in the village become pregnant at the same time…. Lovely cast; Bill Nighy, Sarah Parish and Clive Merrison; and good write-ups should ensure a wonderful series. (1/2).

Monday 1st December.

 :arrow: 11.30 am. The 6 Mothers-in-law of King Henry VIII. An unreliable history. (3/6.). And then there was Seymour.

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Afternoon Play: McLevy. (1/4.) Brian Cox’s Victorian Edinburgh makes a welcome return. I know its crime fiction but if I can mention Holmes then why not McLevy?

Monday 1st Friday to 5th December.

 :arrow: 3.30 pm. Fantastic Tales. (1 – 5/5.) 1: In the Avu Observatory: H.G. Wells [When star gazing, do you hear is what is outside.]; 2: The Voice of God: Winifred Holtby. [Turn off the radio & what is this?]; 3: The Cookie Lady: Phillip K. Dick. [Be warned of old ladies.]; 4: The Prisoner of the Coral Deep: J.G. Ballard. [A Giant Woman Beckons.]; 5: The Half Pair: Bertram Chandler. [In deep space, domestic strife.]

 :arrow: 7.45 pm. Fathers. 5 differing tales, but it maybe of interest. The first tale is, ‘Spooky Little Eyes’, about a control freak who is expecting the birth of a son.

 :arrow: 10.45 pm. A Book at Bedtime: Dracula. (6 – 10) 4 readers are working

Tuesday 2nd December.

 :arrow: 9.30 am. Blood is Thicker Than Water. A documentary on blood. Part 3 (of 5) Are you related to a pharaoh and has some one been reading Anne Rice?

Thursday 4th December.

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Afternoon Play: Talking To Sticky. A woman’s weekly highlight is a crematorium visit and then her dog Sticky dies.

Friday 5th December.

 :arrow: 2.15 pm. The Afternoon Play: The Confessions of Nostradamus. How he survived in dangerous times.

 :arrow: 9 pm. The Friday Play: The Tuner. An ex-miner, who hates the light, eavesdrops by tuning into others talk and becomes fascinated with the mysterious Radio Girl [no relation] who knows about his past.

These last three plays may fit into our chosen genre, and then they may not. Pigeonholing would make my life easier.

The new skin over old tales.

BBC Radio 7.

Saturday 29th November.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: The Twilight Zone: After Hours. (8/20.) A woman is locked in on the 9th floor of a department store, a floor that does not exist.

 :arrow: 9 am repeat 10 pm. Jamaica Inn (4/4.)

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: Journey Into Space: The Red Planet. (14/20). What does the city in the jungle hold?

Thursday 4th to Friday 5th December.

 :arrow: 6 pm repeat midnight. The 7th Dimension: Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett. (1 – 2/4). This one has witches in it, on a stick, well broom.

Oneword.

Sunday 30th November.

 :arrow: 11.30 pm Vintage Radio: Nightmare

Tuesday 2nd December

 :arrow: 8.30 pm Vintage Radio: The Name of the Beast. {My guess on this is an episode of Suspense Starring Vincent Price.}

There is also lurking on Oneword Through the Looking Glass, the listing were poor though.  :evil:
