: Baliol Holloway with Richard Hurndall and Manning Wilson in 'DR. WORTLE'S SCHOOL'

by Anthony Trollope
Adapted for radio by H. Oldfield Box Cast in order of speaking:
(Continued in next column)
Other parts played by members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company Production by Audrey Cameron
Dr. Wortle, the rector of a country parish, has added to his income by taking private pupils, and his small establishment has grown into a highly profitable preparatory school, with a wide reputation.
Where the story opens Dr. Wortle has reached late middle age, and has decided that the time has come when he and his wife should take life more easily. He advertises for a capable man to take over the main duties of the school, with a wife who can act as matron. And great is his delight when a Mr. Peacocke, another clergyman of scholarship equal to his own, with a charming, cultured wife who is ready to act as the school's matron, offers himself for the vacancy.
Mr. Peacocke has previously had an important position in an American university, and it is of course surprising that he should now be ready to occupy a relatively insignificant place in a quiet English village.

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.
