: 'PET MARJORY'

A child of Old Edinburgh, presented in the words of her own Letters and' Poems. Christine Orr has devised the programme and will introduce it. Mary Christie will read the extracts
' Pet Marjorie ', as biographers have called Marjory Fleming , misspelling her name and giving it an epithet that had no support, was a very extraordinary child indeed. Although she died before her ninth birthday, she left journals, letters, and verses written in copybooks, which reveal the most likeable personality and, at times, real literary talent. It is perhaps not to be wondered that writers have written with sentiment of Madgie, Maidie, Muff, or Muffy, as she was variously called from time to time. She was a child prodigy, but at no' time does her precocity make one feel a good smacking would have done her a world of good. A summary of her short life is to be found in the Dictionary of National Biography, she being the youngest person to have such an honour.
Yesterday Seven Times Seven, a play built round her friendship with Sir Walter Scott , and written by Christine Orr who devised this programme, was broadcast in the Scottish Children's Hour. More about Marjory can be found in an article by Christine Orr on page 19.

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.
