The story of the play is that of a maiden lady, Matilda Matthews , who falls from a ladder whilst apple-picking and sprains her ankle. She is succoured by Farmer Lovibond, an eligible bachelor. He carries her to the home she shares with her brother, and fusses around while the incompetent housekeeper (Keziah) is wondering what to do. Ultimately Lovibond bathes the swollen ankle, and is seen doing so by several witnesses, including Keziah, Polly Curtis (the village gossip), and Matthews himself, who, it appears, is a secret gambler and in financial straits. Very soon the whole parish believes that Lovibond is engaged to Matilda, and his daily visits to inquire after her health lend support to the rumour. Then Matthews, who has seen in the situation a source of possible profit and relief, interviews Lovibond as to his intentions and, as the result is unpromising, he engineers an action for ' breach,' Matilda being an unwilling tool in his hands. The parish is greatly excited over the affair, and at the Barley Mow discussion is frank and free. It is hero that Danny Pitman overhears the bargain between Matthews and Curtis, and secures the blotting-paper upon which incriminating words are recorded.
The Third Act shows the Court House at Wells Assizes. Several people are in the Public Gallery, among them Kitty, Penny, Sparks, Pearce, and Danny. Penny is talking to Kitty.

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.

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.
