: Love and Miss Figgis

A play by Stella Martin Currey.
Adapted for television by Alwyne Whatsley and Tatiana Lieven.
Second performance: Thursday at 9.15 p.m.

Love and Miss Figgis are rivals. One of them needs no introduction - except perhaps an amplifying note that it is young and fervent and the dominant emotion of an eighteen-year-old girl called Meg Day - but Miss Figgis needs to be identified more precisely. She is, then, the Senior Classics Mistress at a provincial girls' school, a vigorously efficient woman who, while accepting the human impulses which lead to love and marriage, is driven by her educationalist and feminist enthusiasms to deplore them in this case.
Meg has been an outstanding student who has worked hard and willingly under Miss Figgis's guidance and has a University scholarship and grant within her grasp when her affections are captured and reciprocated by a young and meagrely educated electrician.
Miss Figgis sees Meg as 'a potentially brilliant woman on the verge of being destroyed by her most primitive instinct' - but sympathies will be divided, for the problem is real and there is no easy solution.

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.
