From the novel ' Is He Popenjoy?' by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised as a serial play by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
5 — ' The Marquis Returns '
Mary's move from Manor Cross to her own house in London has quickly introduced her into a gay whirl of social life. But her husband, Lord George, is a very worried man. He is jealous of Mary's friendship with the gay and handsome Captain de Baron. He strongly resents the growing control over his family affairs of his father-in-law, the Dean. He has become uncomfortably involved with his old love, Mrs. Adelaide Houghton. And why has his brother, the Marquis of Brotherton, lied about his marriage, and concealed for so long the birth of his son?

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.
