: ' DAUGHTERS OF REBECCA'

A dramatic programme by G. P. Ambrose and T. Rowland Hughes
Based upon incidents during the Rebecca Riots in Wales
Production by T. Rowland Hughes
During 1840 to 1843 the rural districts of Wales were terrorised by bodies of men disguised in women's clothes. They met at night with blackened faces, and galloped' on horseback to smash and burn the turnpike gates which were a burden on the people. Their leader was known as Rebecca, and they called themselves ' the daughters of Rebecca'. Such incidents in Glamorgan in 1843 form the background to the, story told in this dramatic programme.

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
