Victor Fawkes. Ian Packer and Billy Poeton
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
In the early spring, Clym and Eustacia met frequently, in spite of silent opposition from Clym's mother. Eventually a bitter quarrel with her son precipitated the marriage she had feared. Clym left her to live alone in a cottage some miles away until Eustacia should join him there as his wife. She had persuaded herself he would soon tire of his educational project on Egdon Heath and would return to Paris, taking her with him.
Thomasin had now been married to
Damon Wildeve for some months. She told her aunt he treated her well, but confessed she was kept short of money.

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.
