: North and South

3/4. Thornton is heartbroken and humiliated, but a chance to impress Margaret presents itself.
Dramatised by Sandy Welch from the novel by Elizabeth Gaskell

North & South 9.00pm BBC1
These are turbulent times for Margaret Hale. She was hit by a rock hurled by an angry striking mill worker last week, she's turned down a proposal from the gorgeous John Thornton, and now two of those closest to her are suffering from particularly nasty cases of Costume Drama Cough. Connoisseurs of the genre know that such an ailment can never be cured - from the moment a pasty-faced character hacks into a hanky, the writing is on the wall.
Margaret, too, knows that all will not be well, and seeing her mother fading fast, she's taken the bold step of contacting her brother, a man who's had a very good reason for making himself scarce during recent years. Her only friend in grim Milton, Bessy, also looks a bit peaky, but Bessy has much on her mind, as her dad is the Arthur Scargill figure in the mill workers' strike. But his exhortations for unity appear to be falling on deaf ears, as poverty and starvation overwhelm the workforce. Soon the town is enfolded in recrimination and terrible tragedy. AG

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.
