[edit]

THE BBC has plans for a large-scale increase in its production of tv serials. By April, 1964, the Corporation will be producing nearly five hours of this type of programme for BBC 1 and BBC 2.

And the man in charge of these projects is Donald Wilson, ex-Rank film production man and former head of scripts for BBC Television. Wilson will have working under him between six and 13 directors.

This week he told me that for BBC 1 there would be the continuation of the twice-weekly "Compact," plus another bi-weekly serial which will run alongside it. Thus there would he a serial show on four out of the five weekdays.

Early on Saturday evening there is the new "Dr. Who" science-fiction series, made up of a number of separate serials, which made its debut last weekend. On Sunday afternoon there would be the costume serials with two new ones planned for the future: "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "Martin Chuzzlewit.
