Drama on 3


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Arden of Faversham Alice , the young wife of well-to-do Arden, has fallen in love with Mosby, a one-time butcher with social aspirations. Arden is murdered.
This is the first English murderthriller, written by an unknown contemporary of Shakespeare (though some say he may have had a hand in writing it). It's based on true events of the period, mixing high drama with low comedy as class-envy, greed and passion drive the story to its tragic conclusion.
Adapted anddirected byJohn Tydeman Producer Nicolas Soames

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.
