: The Whiteoak Chronicles: Whiteoak Heritage

by Mazo de la Roche.
Adapted as a television play by Philip Mackie.
[Starring] Jean Cadell and John Justin
The action takes place in and near the Whiteoaks' house 'Jalna', Ontario, in the year 1919.
There will be an interval at 9.15 app.

The year is 1919. Renny Whiteoak, whom we saw as a twenty-year-old in Young Renny, is now in his thirties, returning from the war to become the new master of Jalna. During his service abroad, his father and his step-mother have died, and the estate has been run incompetently - by Uncles Nicholas and Ernest. Renny is confident that he can reorganise the management of the estate and rebuild the family fortune. His ally and confidante is old Adeline, now aged ninety-four, and as strong-minded as ever-though increasingly inclined to fall asleep in her chair. She wants Renny to be a success; and she wants him to marry and provide her with great-grandchildren before she dies. Renny's sister Meg is a disappointment to Adeline: since she broke off her engagement to Maurice Vaughan, Meg seems vowed to eternal spinsterhood. But Renny is ripe for marriage; and there are two good-looking young widows in the neighbourhood, Chris Cummings and Amy Stroud. One of them might make a suitable bride - but Adeline wants to go carefully, when it's a question of selecting the future mistress of Jalna. (Philip Mackie)

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.
