At Queen's Crawley, Pitt is obviously attracted to Becky and Lady Jane begins to regard her brilliant sister-in-law a little doubtfully. Old Osborne formally offers to make Georgy his heir, provided he comes to live with him. Eventually Amelia agrees after an emotional scene with her mother.
Lord Steyne persuades his wife to invite Becky to dinner at Gaunt House. He wants Becky to get rid of Briggs but she says she dare not as she has borrowed money from Briggs and cannot repay it. Steyne agrees to give her the money, Becky having asked for twice the sum due.
At Gaunt House the women guests are affronted when Becky appears, but when she sings all the men crowd around her at the piano.

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.
