: Mr Wroe's Virgins

Less than a year after demanding seven virgins from his local congregation to serve in his household, the 19th-century preacher John Wroe was accused by two of them of " indecency and things not fit to be spoke of" . Jonathan Pryce stars as the self-styled Prophet of the Christian Israelite church in Ashton, in this extraordinary tale unearthed by writer Jane Rogers in her home town of Ashton-under-Lyne. Nothing is known of the fate of the virgins, so Rogers decided to tell the stories of four of them.
Last year's four one-hour dramas are being re-shown as two 90-minute episodes. This week, the sensual Leah and the saintly Joanna find their lives become inextricably linked when they start living together under the eccentric cleric's roof.

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.

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.
