: Lorna Doone: Episode 11: A Long Account Settled

by R. D. Blackmore.
Dramatised in eleven episodes by Constance Cox.
From a treatment by A. R. Rawlinson.

In which a cruel murder arouses the men of Exmoor, and later the Ridds' happiness is brutally interrupted.
From the West

A Long Account Settled 5.40
For the last ten weeks many of you have been following the fortunes of those two West Country families, the Ridds and the Doones, particularly the unhappy love affair between John (played by Bill Travers) and Lorna (Jane Merrow), in Constance Cox's television dramatisation of R. D. Blackmore's famous story. And if you have you will certainly not want to miss tonight's final episode with its breath-taking climax to the exciting tale, for in it the peace-loving men of Exmoor are roused by a cruel and useless murder to settle their score with the pitiless outlaws of Doone valley once and for all. Later, when Lorna returns from London and the service of the Queen, it looks as if at last the future holds happiness for the tall rugged farmer-now Sir John Ridd but before long this happiness is brutally interrupted..

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.
