Ernest Clark with Monica Grey and Roderick Lovell in 'SOAMES FORSYTE,Esq.'


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.
from John Galsworthy 's
' A Modern Comedy ' freely adapted for broadcasting by Muriel Levy
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Soames Forsyte , the Man of Property, recalls the past and his unavailing struggle to hold his first wife, Irene. Now he is almost as possessive about his daughter Fleur, who is married to Michael Mont while her heart is still very much with her former love, Jon Forsyte , son of Irene and Jolyon.
Fleur is a modern product and a ' collector ' of people, including Wilfred Desert. Although Soames's time is taken up with business headaches he is never too busy to keep one eye on Fleur.

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.
