: Pride and Prejudice: Part 3

by Jane Austen
Adapted for television in six weekly instalments by Cedric Wallis
[Starring] Alan Badel
with Phyllis Neilson-Terry, Marian Spencer, Jane Downs

Mrs. Bennet's matrimonial plans for her daughters are considerably dashed. Elizabeth has declined an offer of marriage from Mr. Collins, a young clergyman, who is heir to the Longbourne estate; and because of this refusal he has turned to Charlotte Lucas who is more than ready to accept him. And her plans for Jane and Mr. Bingley are frustrated; for he and his friends suddenly leave Netherfield for an indefinite stay in London. Elizabeth's unfavourable impression of Mr. Darcy deepens on hearing of his harsh treatment of that charming Mr. Wickham.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
