: ' THE TICHBORNE CASE'

Arthur Hayward
Listeners are to hear an account of one of the most remarkable impersonation cases that ever occupied the English courts, and one that set England talking as it seldom talked before. It is a story that reads almost like fiction, and fiction of the best: the story of ' Bullocky Orton ', a journeyman-butcher in New South Wales, who read an advertisement of one, Lady Tichborne, who refused to believe that her son had been drowned at sea. He deceived her and half England. His claim to the Tichborne estate collapsed after a speech by Sir John Coleridge , Solicitor-General, lasting three weeks, and he was then arrested in court for perjury. The criminal trial, in 1873, lasted 188 days, when Orton was found guilty and sentenced to fourteen years' penal servitude.

: 'MISTRESS AND MAID'

The Registry Office Point of View
A person who professionally has a knowledge of the servant problem second to none is obviously one who runs a registry office. The employer comes to her with exacting requirements and perhaps full of grievances against her last maid. The servant looking for another place perhaps comes burning with indignation against her mistress.
In today's broadcast the manageress of a country registry office is coming to the microphone to discuss the question as she experiences it, and it is hoped that listeners may also hear the point of view of a manageress of a registry office in a town.

: The Journal of A TOUR TO THE HEBRIDES

with Samuel Johnson , LL.D.
Compiled from the account by James Boswell by Hunter Diack and R. A. Jolly
Dr. Johnson had for many years given me hopes that we should go together and visit the Hebrides. We reckoned there would be some inconveniences and hardships, and perhaps a little danger ; but these we were persuaded were magnified in the imagination of everybody. When I was at Femey in 1764, I mentioned our design to Voltaire. He looked at me as if I had talked of going to the North Pole and said ' You do not insist on my accompanying you? ' ' No, sir.' ' Then I am very willing that you should go.'

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.
