Act I
ON an eighteenth-century January morning tho courtyard of the Coverdale Anns becomes a storm centre. Lionel Bland is there, determined to put a stop to a parentally arranged marriage between his sweetheart, Alice Cover dale, and Captain Harry Romney. Lady Molly Martingale , accompanied by her maid, Hester, arrives on horseback, also bent upon squashing the same marriage because Harry happens to be her lover. Aided and abetted by his ex-servant, Mickey. she masquerades under Harry's name, in a suit of his clothes, and succeeds in making Sir Miles Coverdate believe that she is his future son-in-law. When Harry appears on the scene, he is regarded as an impostor, and is subsequently arrested, together with Lionel, for duelling.
ACT II
These complications grow more involved in the drawing-room, Castle Coverdale. Alice, of course, has penetrated Molly's disguise, and amuses herself by pretending to bo . namourcd of her smooth-faced suitor.' Harry and Lionel, now at liberty, vowing vengeance upon the usurper of Harry's name and clothes, attack Molly, sword in hand. Alice averts bloodshed ; the timely arrival of Judge Romney establishes Harry's identity ; and Molly's resumption of feminine garb clears the air so effectually that the curtain falls upon the prospect of at least two happy marriages.








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.
