: ' All for t'love of a Lady'

Two brothers-middle-aged Yorkshire-men-shared a house somewhere in the West Riding. Jonathan was by instinct a ' family man ', David a cross-grained bachelor, boorish and malicious. No love was lost between them, but they managed to 'jog along' together, until ' yar Jonathan' announced that he intended to marry their joint house-keeper. Then the trouble started. Brother David, anticipating domestic discomfort, forbade the banns in advance.; and Jonathan had to meet guile with guile before he led his bride to the altar.
Such is the theme of All for t'Love of a Lady, George Beaumont 's Yorkshire comedy, which is to be broadcast tonight. The author, who has written previously for broadcasting, is at present employed as scenic designer to the Harrogate Repertory Company, but formerly he was a dental mechanic. A talented actor, he is one of James R. Gregson 's Yorkshire Radio Players, and as such will take part in his own show.

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
