: ' MARY LOVELACE

From the novel ' Is He Popenjoy ? by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised as a serial play in thirteen parts by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
10 — ' Mary Dances the Kappa-Kappa '
Cast in order of speaking:
Music specially composed by John Buckland played by the BBC Revue Orchestra
Conductor. Frank Cantell
Lord George has been obliged to apologise to Mary, his wife, for listening too readily to the malicious accusations of their enemies concerning her friendship with Captain de Baron. But his mind is still filled with mistrust, and this is greatly increased when he discovers from Adelaide Houghton that Mary is to take part in the public display of a new Moldavian figure dance, with Captain de Baron himself as her partner.
Tonight's episode tells how Lord George appears at the ball where this dance is being performed, and, carried away by jealousy, humiliates his wife before the eyes of hundreds of astonished spectators. Mary is driven to her father for protection, and her marriage is brought to the crisis so long threatened.

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.
