: ELLEN TERRY

1906-1928
A biography by CHRISTOPHER ST. JOHN
Read by Marie Löhr
Arranged for broadcasting in six episodes by Mollie Greenhalgh
Produced by Audrey Cameron
CHAPTER 4
Chapter 3 told of Ellen Terry 's return to the stage under Oswald Stoll 's management in 1915. A year later she made her first appearance in films, and despite her age she was able to give a marvellous illusion of youth and grace.
In 1921 financial trouble overtook her, and she was with difficulty rescued from disaster by the efforts of friends. At this time, too, not only her eyesight but her hearing and memory showed signs of failure.

: THE VERDICT OF THE COURT

Reconstructions of famous trials with postscripts by Dudley Perkins
6: The Peasenhall Murder
Norwich Assizes: 1903 with Francis de Wolff
William Gardiner was tried on the charge of murdering a servant-girl alleged to be his mistress. The jury disagreed. He was tried a second time. Again the jury disagreed and he was set free. The weight of evidence against him was remarkable and he owed much to the brilliant defence of Ernest Wild , who was able in large measure to discredit several witnesses for the prosecution who were obviously hostile to the prisoner.

Production by Joe Burroughs

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.
