Dramatised as a serial in ten parts by Howard Agg
7 — ' Art and Power '
Music selected by Cynthia Pughe
Production by Val Gielgud and Audrey Cameron
On Ronald Dunquerque 's recommendation, Humphrey and Cornelius Jagenal call on Gilead P. Beck , who agrees to become their patron. A small cheque on account sets the seal on the brothers' jubilation.
Gabriel Cassilis is greatly disturbed at having received a number of anonymous letters hinting at an affair between his wife and Lawrence Colquhoun , and Joseph Jagenal promises to investigate the matter. Colquhoun makes it clear to Victoria Cassilis that her constant invitations are unwelcome. She upbraids him for his attentions to his ward, Phillis Fleming , and hints at reprisals.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
