Down the Vale of Lune
Wilfred describes a walk by the River Lune from Kirkby Lonsdale to Lancaster, down the Vale of Lune
It is a wide, lovely valley, its scenery ranging from river, woodland, and pasture to the fell-heights above Kirkby. Wilfred sees and hears something about the things that go on in the Vale of Lune nowadays, and things that have happened there in the past-the salmon fishing that draws anglers fcom all over the country and the farming that is the life of the valley dwellers. He visits quiet villages along this route, and castles that withstood the Roundhead siege in the Civil War. This part of Lancashire was strongly Royalist, and Thurland and Hornby Castles suffered badly at the hands of Cromwell. At Cowan Bridge, Charlotte Bronte went to school and afterwards wrote of her experiences in Jane Eyre.

From the novel' Is He Popenjoy? ' by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised as a serial play by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
3-' Mary Goes Into Society '
Cast in order of speaking:
The Dean of Brotherton's hope that his daughter Mary may, by her marriage to Lord George Germain, become at some future time the Marchioness of Brotherton, has been gravely diminished, for Lord George's brother, the reigning Marquis, has suddenly married, and is about to return to Manor Cross, after his long exile in Italy. But to this news Mary herself is quite indifferent. At last she has made her escape from her stern sisters-in-law to her own home in London.
The first season starts very happily.
Even Lord George begins to settle down to London life. And then one evening at a dinner party they learn something of a truly starthng nature.

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.
