: ' 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
Final episode:
' Mary Makes Her Decision '
Cast in order of speaking:
The breach between Mary and her husband has, to some extent at least, been healed. The news that Mary was to be a mother had quickly brought Lord George to the Deanery, and on neither side had there been any lack of tenderness in the meeting.
But on one point Lord George remains as obstinate as ever. He will not stay in the Dean's house. Mary must leave her father and come to him. Mary will not desert her father so long as he remains unforgiven by her husband's family; so she and Lord George continue to live in different houses.
The Marquis meanwhile has separated from his own wife and child; and, sufficiently recovered from the Dean's attack on him, he goes to stay only ten miles away from Brotherton, at. Rudham Park, Here news comes to him that his son has died in Italy.
Among his fellow guests is Jack de
Baron. He leaves Rudham on the same day as the Marquis, but not with him. Determined to see Mary again he breaks his journey at Brotherton.

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.
