: THE WOMAN IN WHITE

by WILKIE COLLINS
Dramatised as a serial for broadcasting in twelve parts by Howard Agg 12: The Last Chance
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Determined to bring first Sir Percival and then Count Fosco to justice, Walter Hartright visited the village of Welmingham where he consulted the church register and the entry relating to the marriage of Sir Percival's father with a woman of the same parish. Further enquiries revealed that the marriage had never taken place.
Hastening back to Welmingham,
Walter saw the church vestry in flames and the body of a stranger, subsequently identified as Sir Percival Glyde, taken from the smouldering ruins. Only then did Mrs. Catherick confide her secret: that she was the mother of both Anne Catherick and Laura Fairlie.

: REITH LECTURES 1960

Art and Anarchy by EDGAR WIND
Professor of the History of Art in the University of Oxford and Fellow of Trinity College
3: Critique of Connoisseurship
The modern techniques of connoisseurship, Professor Wind believes, may outlast the one-sided ideas of art on which they were originally founded. In discussing some of the virtues and weaknesses of this pursuit, Professor Wind draws particular attention to the importance of Giovanni Morelli (1816-1891), who was the first to treat connoisseurship as a rational form of enquiry.

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.
