A Provincial Lady
The writer E. M. Delafield , who died in 1943, was best known for her Diary of a Provincial Lady books. Humorous accounts of the difficulties women have in combining domestic and professional life, they still strike a chord today and a number of reprints are restoring her work to a wide public. Delafield was also a prolific novelist, playwright, prison reformer, journalist and, briefly, a nun. Rosemary Hill talks to her biographer Lady Violet Powell and to Richard Ingrams about Delafield's legacy and particular charm.

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.
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.
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.
