For many centuries Plas Einon has been the home of the Einon-Thomas family, and always it is the male heir in the direct line of descent who inherits. There comes a time however at the end of the 1914-18 war when the inheritance falls to a distant cousin whom few of the family have ever seen and who is at the time serving in the army.. Meanwhile, the darkly handsome Gwenllian, unmarried daughter of the late head of the house, reigns at Plas Einon. Upon the return of the new heir she is faced with having to surrender her position to one who in her eyes is in every way unworthy. Although aware of the justice of the new heir's claim, it is a terrible struggle for her to have to accept it...

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.
