: Margaret Rutherford and Paul Scofield in * MISS HARGREAVES'

A fantastic comedy by Frank Baker
Production by Donald McWhinnie
' You think this is a real woman, don't you? Who came into the world by normal means? Well, she didn't. She is my fantasy, my history-not free to move unless I allow her to move. One of my selves, if you like, whom I foolishly let loose in the world. Is this beyond belief? So was America before Columbus found it..... ' The Dean of Cornford naturally refuses to believe that the eccentric old lady whom he finds playing the organ in his Cathedral owes her existence to a young man's inventive imagination. She is so solidly real. with her poodle, her cockatoo, her hip-bath, her harp, her autocratic ways. and her passion for cathedrals. But Norman Huntley was not raving. The visible presence of Miss Hargreaves in Cornford sets up a train of complications which do more than cause him acute embarrassment, and he is not alone in suffering from the consequences of his flight of fancy.
The author, who plays the piano and organ in tonight's production, made this radio version from his well-known novel, Miss Hargreaves. It is the first of a number of plays specially adapted for radio, and not hitherto broadcast, which the Home Service is presenting during the Festival period. C. N.

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.
