: Barchester Towers: Episode 3

by Anthony Trollope
A new adaptation in ten episodes by H. Oldfield Box
In the cathedral city of Barchester war has been declared—between the established broad-Anglican cathedral chapter, under the banner at Archdeacon Grantly, and the new evangelical set at the bishop's palace. The new bishop, his wife, and his self-seeking chaplain, Mr. Slope, are already exerting themselves to change the old order of things. The re-appointment of the Rev. Septimus Harding , the cathedral precentor, to the wardenship of Hiram's Hospital depends on the bishop's nomination. Mr. Slope has written, in the bishop's name, to Dr. Stanhope, a prebendary of the cathedral (who has long been living in Italy, in happy idleness), hinting that it is high time he returned home to attend to his duties. Dr. Stanhope, unable to ignore the hint, has arrived in Barchester, where the presence of his highly unconventional family is providing a considerable sensation at Bishop and Mrs. Proudie's first reception.

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.
