A Play by DOT ALLAN
Produced by STUART VINDEN
The living-room of a country cottage in Derbyshire on a dark night in winter. The room is lit by an oil lamp, which shows up the old-fashioned furniture, including a dresser on which stands a clock and lantern. Mrs. Brentwood is warming her hands at the fire, while Ann is standing idly looking through the window at the snowy landscape. Her mother had died many years before, a stranger in a village where strangers are not welcomed, and she had been brought up by Mrs. Brentwood. Although engaged to Jim Bryant , she craves for a glimpse of the world beyond the bleak fells before settling down.

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.
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.
