Rawdon is arrested and writes asking Becky to raise money for his release. Becky replies that she is unable to do so. He then writes to Lady Jane, who comes immediately with the money.
Rawdon goes home to find Becky, bedecked with jewels, and Lord Steyne alone. Steyne believes Rawdon's return is a trick to blackmail him and in his fury he lets it be known that Becky's jewels were given to her by him. Rawdon challenges him to a duel, but later Mr. Wenham skilfully contrives to have the duel abandoned. Next day there is an announcement that Rawdon has been appointed Governor of Coventry Island. This having been arranged by Lord Steyne before the scene with Becky and Rawdon, he cannot now go back on it.
So Rawdon goes abroad alone leaving young Rawdon with Lady Jane.

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.
