Dramatised for broadcasting in twelve parts by Howard Agg
3 — ' The Shadow '
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
On his first meeting with Laura Fairlie at Limmeridge House, Walter Hartright, engaged by Mr. Fairlie to instruct his niece in the art of sketching, is convinced that he has seen her before, but he cannot remember where. He speaks of this to Marian Halcombe and tells her of his strange encounter with the Woman in White and her curious reference to Limmeridge and the Fairlie family.
Marian is at once perturbed and later comes across evidence which causes her to fear that Laura's future and her own are threatened by this sinister shadow thrown so unexpectedly across their path. Her fears are soon justified by the arrival of an anonymous letter, and the suspicion that leads her to go with Walter Hartright to the church at Limmeridge and the grave of Mrs. Fairlie.

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.
