: Hugh Burden in 'OF HUMAN BONDAGE'

by W. Somerset Maugham
Adapted for radio as a serial in twelve parts by Howard Agg Produced by Anthony Pelissier
11—' The Persian Rug'
Philip Carey is now living in rooms in Kennington. He is no longer in love with Mildred Rogers, but he is sorry for her and offers her a home and her keep if she will look after the place for him. This she agrees to do, but after a few weeks they quarrel again. The following evening Philip returns home and finds that Mildred has gone, first having completely wrecked his home.
At this time Philip enters into a deal on the Stock Exchange which results in the loss of about three hundred pounds. Finding himself suddenly penniless and out of work he calls on the Athelnys, who insist that he stays with them, and Thorpe Atheiny gets him a job as shop-walker in his firm. Later he is promoted to designer of costumes.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
