of Temperance Lloyd,
Mary Trembles, and Susannah Edwards
Bideford, Devon. July 3, 1682
Arranged from the original depositions by E. W. Martin
Production by Francis Dillon
Trials for witchcraft were at one time common in England, though records of court proceedings are scarce. This evening's programme is, however, based on the original depositions made at Bideford in 1682, when Temperance Lloyd, Mary Trembles , and Susannah Edwards were charged with the practice of witchcraft, and associating with the Devil, and causing the death of several persons by the means of spells!
The confessions of the witches were so full, and delivered with such eloquence and sincerity that the court had no choice but to condemn them. All three claimed to have had acquaintance with the Devil, whom they described in divers and gruesome terms.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
