: Fay Compton and Andre Morell in ' THE HISTORY OF HENRY ESMOND'

by William Makepeace Thackeray
Dramatised for broadcasting by John Keir Cross
12-' Indian Summer'
With Franklyn Bellamy , Donald Gray Stanley Groome Joan Hart Preston Lockwood. Hugh Manning. Ella Milne. Elsa Palmer , and Ronald Sidney
Produced by Peter Watts
All has toppled, it seems, in Esmond's great design. He has succeeded in bringing James Stuart to England in readiness for his dramatic proclamation as James III the moment that Queen Anne should die. He has succeeded beyond his wildest hopes in holding the Pretender secretly hidden in Rachel's little house in Kensington for the moment of moments. But when the moment of moments came at last-when all was ripe for the great disclosure that the last of the Stuarts was actually in England and willing to mount the throne — James himself was not ready for it, as Henry and all his other supporters were. His Royal Highness had gone-to Castlewood,, and on the direct invitation of Beatrix. It was for her that Henry had dared aU, and it was through her, it seemed, that all was to be destroyed after all — his fatal, fatal Beatrix '

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
