: The Whiteoak Chronicles: Jalna

by Mazo de la Roche.
Adapted as a television play by Philip Mackie.
[Starring] Jean Cadell and Robin Bailey
The action takes place in and near the Whiteoaks' house, 'Jalna', Ontario, between autumn 1924 and summer 1925.
See facing page
At 8.30

The time is 1924-five years after the events of Whiteoak Heritage. Renny, the master of Jalna, is still unmarried. Meg, his elder sister, has become an embittered spinster of forty, still nursing a grudge against the fate that broke off her marriage to Maurice Vaughan eighteen years earlier. But their young half-brothers are growing to manhood and thinking of marriage. Eden, Piers, and Finch are widely diverse in character. Eden is talented, charming, idle, and utterly selfish. Piers, aged twenty, is a stolid, unimaginative farmer who despises Eden's poetry and prefers the inarticulate company of horses and cattle. Finch is at the awkward age, a dreamy youngster troubled by the uncertainties and questionings of adolescence. Into this family circle Eden brings his American bride, Alayne. Alayne has had a sheltered and fastidious upbringing: she is taken aback b/ the uninhibited Whiteoaks, perpetually quarrelling, loving, and hating each other. Especially is she taken aback by old Adeline. Adeline is ninety-nine, hardly caring what she looks like, certainly not caring two hoots what she says. The old lady's mind is set on just one thing: to survive to her hundredth birthday. (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.
