: Maxine Audley Michael Hordern, Laidmin Browne and Ronald Simpson in ' MARY LOVELACE'

bringing with him his Italian wife and his year-old son-the son of whose legitimacy there is so much natural doubt in the minds of his family. Driven against his will to act in the matter. Lord George goes down to the country, leaving Mary his wife, in the care of his sister Lady

But Mary's behaviour during her husband s absence profoundly shocks her narrow-minded sister-in-law, and leads to a considerable upheaval on Lord George's return.

After the outbreak of war, he resigned from the Diplomatic Service and enlisted in the Cameron Highlanders. He later ioined a Special Air Service Regiment in the Middle East and became a member of the first parachute unit to be formed in that theatre of war, taking part in several of their now famous operations behind the enemy lines in the Western Desert. In 1943 he was dropped by parachute into German-occupied Yugoslavia and commanded the British Military Mission to the Yugoslav Partisans.

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.
