Nicholas Nickleby


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.
Dramatised in thirteen parts by HUGH LEONARD
This new serial is just over halfway through and our hero Nicholas has suffered greatly at the hands of the cruel schoolmaster Mr. Squeers. But Nicholas is not free of Squeers yet: for in today's episode Squeers pays a visit to his uncle Ralph and together they plot to get even with Nicholas ...
Meanwhile Nicholas and his simple friend Smike have left
Vincent Crummles 's company of strolling players and set out for London after receiving a note that Kate is in danger.
As Nicholas hurries back he overhears a conversation in a restaurant.
A stranger is talking about Kate in most familiar and uncomplimentary terms. Nicholas demands to know the man's name: but the stranger refuses. Nicholas follows him to his private cab, but is struck by a whip. The horse rears up, whinnying in terror, and gallops off. Seconds later the coach crashes and overturns.
For a moment Nicholas hesitates, then takes to his heels ...

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.
