Scene : Sir Horace Belgrove 's Study
Although Sir Horace Belgrove had an aitch in his Christian name, he has always been uncertain of his aspirates, and Mr. Mingleby, an unsuccessful Oxford man, helped him to make famous speeches in the House of Commons by teaching him word by word. Sir Horace is as ambitious for his daughter, Sybil, as for himself, and he intends to marry her to nothing less than a Coronet, but Tony Lessing complicates matters by loving and by being beloved by Sybil. The unsuccessful Mr. Mingleby also loves her, but knowing that his suit is hopeless, he resolves to make his employer behave handsomely. HELENA MILLAIS (the Actress-Entertainer)

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
