: BETTESWORTH ON COUNTRY REMEDIES

The third of five readings from the works of George Bourne
Selected and read by Bernard Miles
Bourne records, in Bettesworth's own words, the old countryman's views on such differing subjects as Right and Wrong, village nicknames, and a good way to cure a toothache: ' I've put baccer in my teeth — I've even gone so fur's to put it in my ears. Roll it up tight an' soak it in rum and poke it into yer ear'ole, the side where the ache is. 'T stops the pain for a bit, but it very soon makes yer head begin to jump.'

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the School of Stitchery and Lace, Bookham, Surrey, by the Viscount Crookshank, c.H.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The organisation was founded in 1927, its object being to provide a home, companionship, training, and employment for young crippled girls from all parts of the British Isles. The girls at Bookham are severely disabled for life as a result of illness. Many are confined to wheel chairs and all require constant care and specialised professional treatment. During their training and afterwards the girls execute work of a high order including dressmaking, lingerie, church vestments, embroideries, and skilled repairs to lace and fine fabrics. Their work is greatly admired at exhibitions and sales in various parts of the country and by the many visitors who are always very welcome at the School.

: Valentine Dyall in 'THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO'

by Alexandre Dumas
From the version for broadcasting in twelve parts by Patrick Riddell
Final episode
' The Fifth of September ' and members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company
Produced by Peter Watts
For more than twenty years, Edmond Dantes has been planning his revenge on the three men who had him falsely imprisoned in the Chateau d'lf, and it is now almost complete.
He has driven the sinister
Fernand Mondego to disgrace and suicide. For the sake of their old love, however, he has arranged that Mercedes, whom Fernand stole from him years ago, shall live out her days in peace in Marseilles.
The Judge, de Villefort, has also been publicly shamed, when Monte Cristo exposed his crime of burying alive an illegitimate child. Monte Cristo has also thwarted Madame de Villefort's plot to poison her step-daughter Valentine: hastily sending the girl's fiance Maximilian out of Paris, he has substituted for the poison a drug that simulates death, and has spirited her away to his island in the care of the Greek girl Haydee. Both de Villefort and his scheming wife believe the girl dead and buried, and de Villefort has accused her of the murder.
There remains Baron Danglars, whose motive was the most ignoble of all-namely greed. Monte Cristo's financial schemes have now so shaken the banker's credit that he, too, is on the verge of ruin.

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.
