by CHARLES DICKENS dramatised intenepisodes by BETTY DAVIES
7: The Mighty Merdle
There was a sympathetic understanding established between Little Dorrit and the young Mrs Gowan and they had a new assurance of congeniality in the aversion which each perceived that the other felt towards Blandois of Paris; an aversion amounting to repugnance and horror of a natural antipathy towards an odious creature of the reptile kind. To both of them, Blandois behaved in exactly the same manner: it was as if he had said, ' I have a secret power in this quarter. I know what I know.'

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.
