: Valentine Dyall in ' THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO %

by Alexandre Dumas from the version for broadcasting in twelve parts by Patrick Riddell
2—'The Betrothal Feast'
Produced by Peter Watts
When the captain of the schooner Pharaon dies at sea the young mate, Edmond Dantes, takes over command. He also, unwittingly; becomes responsible for a letter from Napoleon on Elba to the Bonapartists in Paris. He brings the ship safely home to Marseilles, where M. Morrel, the owner, promises him the command of the Pharaon, but Danglars, the supercargo, is jealous.
Edmond is overjoyed to return to his old father, and his sweetheart Mercedes. But here too he has a rival, for Fernand Mondego, a fisherman, also loves the beautiful Catalan girl. Danglars, seizing his opportunity, inveigles Fernand into sending a letter to the authorities denouncing Edmond as a Bonapartist agent.

: A SETTING FOR ST. PAUL'S

Talk by Nikolaus Pevsner
Sir William Holford 's recently published project for transforming the area around St. Paul's Cathedral has aroused a good deal of controversy; this has mainly centred round the question whether Wren's masterpiece should be given a formal or an informal setting. Dr. Pevsner, last year's Reith Lecturer, examines the present scheme against the background of English architectural tradition.
A model of the proposed new layout of the area around St. Paul's is on view in London at the Guildhall Library.

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.
