by Wilkie Collins
Dramatised as a serial for broadcasting in twelve parts by Howard Agg
2-' Strange Fatality '
Pianist, Bernice Lehmann
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
On a summer evening Walter Hartright arrived from London at the village of Limmeridge on the coast of Cumberland, and presented himself at Limmeridge House, home of Mr. Frederick Fairlie. He had been engaged to instruct Mr. Fairlie's niece Laura and her half-sister Marian Halcombe in the art of sketching.
On his first morning he met the three people who were to play such a decisive part in his life: Mr. Fairlie, the eccentric bachelor master of the house; Marian, to whom he related the strange incident that happened to him only the night before he left London; and Laura, whose striking resemblance to someone he has met haunted his mind and cast a shadow for him over the tranquil, sunlit surroundings of Limmeridge House.

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.
