Three Scenes from R. S. SURTEES ' Famous
Sporting Novel, 'HANDLEY CROSS'
Arranged for Broadcasting by B. 0. MARCH Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
Performed by the STATION REPERTORY PLAYERS
MR. JORROCKS was a great city grocer of the old school. A natural-born sportsman, his lot being cast behind a counter instead of in the country, is one of those frolics of fortune that there is no accounting for. To remedy the error of the blind goddess, Mr. Jorrocks had taken to hunting as soon as he could keep a horse. He was no rider, but had an almost intuitive knowledge of the run of a fox. The ambition of his lie was realized when he became Master of the Handley Cross Fox-Hounds.
THE STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORRISON
SCENE I.-Mr. Jorrocks consults Captain Doleful, Master of Ceremonies of the fashionable Handley Cross Spa, regarding the toasts to be proposed at the forthcoming Hunt Dinner.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
