: When the Wedding Was Over

by RUTH RENDELL ,
'... a strangled shout was heard from the dining-room. Florence went into the room and found Edward Winchurch lying on the floor, an overturned glass of port on the table. Florence approached him and he went into a violent convulsion, his hands grasping the chair in apparent agony. He died a few minutes later.'
Charged with her husband's murder, Florence Winchurch is found guilty and hanged. But was she guilty? Many years later, Chief Inspector Wexford examines the evidence.
In the sixth of seven readings related to the preceding Bookshelf programme, Petra Davles reads this short story by the award-winning crime writer.

It would be a travesty to say that Guy suspected Apthorpe of lying. His claims to distinction - porpoise-skin boots, a High Church aunt in Tun-bridge Wells, a friend who was on good terms with a gorilla - were not what an impostor would invent in order to impress. Yet there was about Apthorpe a sort of fundamental implaush bility. with PETER BALDWIN ALAN DUDLEY

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.
