: DOCTOR THORNE

by ANTHONY TROLLOPE adapted for radio in thirteen episodes by H. Oldfield Box EPISODB 6
Lady Arabella, wife of the squire of Greshamsbury (that sadly encumbered estate), has taken advantage of her son Frank's visit to Courcy Castle, to tell Doctor Thorne that Mary's visits to the Manor House must end. And Doctor Thorne, angered by Lady Arabella's imputations that his niece is trying to trap Frank into marrying her, has told Lady Arabella that he will share Mary's exile.
At Courcy, Frank has met Miss
Dunstable, the heiress, whom his mother and aunt hope he will woo and win. But Frank, though he finds Miss Dunstable a very pleasant woman, has no such intention.

: THOSE TWO IMPOSTORS

How do world-class athletes react to triumph and disaster?
Roger Bannister , Herb Elliott Angela Mortimer
Stirling Moss , Frank Tyson discussed this with Christopher Brasher in a programme on April 8
It was the hearing of this recording when it was first broadcast, and the views expressed by his fellow sportsmen that caused Herb Elliott suddenly to announce his retirement from international athletics, and it is in view of the interest aroused by this decision that the programme is being repeated tonight.

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.
