Three people haunted Arthur Clennam's thoughts: his father, with the steadfast look with which he had died; his mother. with her arm up, warding oft his suspicion: and Little Dorrit. with her hand on her degraded father's arm and her drooping head turned away. What if his mother had an old reason she well knew for softening to this poor girl? What if the prisoner should trace back his fall to her? What if any act of hers. and of his father's, should have even remotely brought the grey heads of the two Dorrit brothers so low? withand

Little Dorrit

by CHARLES DICKENS dramatised in ten episodes by BETTY DAVIES starring and 4: The Stranger
Arthur Clennam had come to attach to Little Dorrit an interest so peculiar - an interest that removed her from, while it grew out of, the common and coarse things surrounding her - that he found it disappointing, disagreeable, almost painful, to suppose her in love with young Mr Chivery in the backyard. or any such person. and Directed by JANE MORGAN (Repeated: Tues 3.15 pm) (Selina Cadell is a National Theatre player) long wave only

5: Pancks the Gypsy
. " Mr Gowan ," said Arthur Clennam, " has reason to be very happy. God bless his wife and him! " Pet wept, as she tried to thank him. He reassured her, took her hand as it lay with the trembling roses in it on his arm. took the remaining roses from it, and put it to his lips. At that time, it seemed to him, he first finally resigned the dying hope that had flickered in nobody's heart so much to its pain and trouble; and from that time he became in his own eyes a very much older man who had done with that part of his life.'

7: The Mighty Merdle
There was a sympathetic understanding established between Little Dorrit and the young Mrs Gowan and they had a new assurance of congeniality in the aversion which each perceived that the other felt towards Blandois of Paris; an aversion amounting to repugnance and horror of a natural antipathy towards an odious creature of the reptile kind. To both of them, Blandois behaved in exactly the same manner: it was as if he had said, ' I have a secret power in this quarter. I know what I know.'

Arthur observed that wherever he went he saw, or heard, or touched, the celebrated name of Merdie. He began to think it was curious that it should be everywhere, and that nobody but he should seem to have any mistrust of it. Though, indeed, he began to remember when he got to this that even he did not mistrust it; he had only happened to keep aloof from it.
Such symptoms, when a disease of the kind is rife, are usually the signs of sickening. with and with JOHN BULL

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.
