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

From the novel' Is He Popenjoy?' by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
8-1 Lord George is Exceedingly Careless'
Cast in order of speaking:
Lord George Germain is sorely harassed. Against his inclinations he has been driven by his father-in-law, the Dean, to take action against his brother, the Marquis, and to set on foot a private enquiry into the circumstances of the Marquis's marriage. Mary, his wife, is by no means the docile submissive creature he had hoped and expected; indeed she is rapidly showing herself the dominant partner, and her friendship with Captain de Baron still continues. Lord George determines that he must restore his mastery. But his own carelessness leads Mary to make a discovery that still further reduces his status.

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.
