: ' THE WOMAN IN WHITE'

by Wilkie Collins
Dramatised as a serial for broadcasting in twelve parts by Howard Agg
4—' The Pledge '
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Rumour of a woman dressed in white and seen in the churchyard at Limmeridge has led Marian Halcombe and Walter Hartright to the spot, and to the discovery that the marble cross above the grave of Mrs. Fairlie has been recently, but only partially, cleaned. In the hope that this woman, whom Walter Hartright now suspects as being none other than Anne Catherick, and the writer of the anonymous letter sent to Laura Fairlie, will return to the graveyard, he goes alone at sunset and, concealing himself in the church porch, waits for her to appear.
He is not disappointed; but what he learns only adds to Marian Halcombe's alarm at the impending visit of Sir Percival Glyde to Limmeridge House and the hastening of her sister's marriage.

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.
