: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of The Friend of the Clergy Corporation, by The Lady Cynthia Colville , D.C.V.O., J.P.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Friend of the Clergy Corporation was founded to provide pensions for the widows and elderly unmarried daughters of deceased clergymen of the Church of England, and is now celebrating its centenary, having been founded on St. Stephen's Day, 1849. These ' unpaid curates '-the wives and daughters of clergymen-are doubly bereaved when the husband or father dies, as it means at once leaving their only home. In fact their whole life is uprooted—husband or father gone, means of livelihood gone, home gone, position gone. Today the situation is further complicated by the difficulty of finding fresh accommodation-to buy even a cottage is usually beyond their purse, and to rent a house, or even rooms, is a difficult and expensive business. A pension for life at such a time, with the implication that somebody cares, brings hope and comfort and rekindles faith.

: ' THE VIRGINIANS '

A radio dramatisation by John Keir Cross of the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray
5—' The Way of the World '
Produced by Peter Watts
It seems that for the moment Harry Warrington, the only survivor of the two Virginians of the title, is free from the complications that have entered his life since the beginning of his visit to England. He has escaped from Castlewood House, the old home of his ancestors the Esmonds, where his English relatives have done their best to win some of his fortune from him at the tables. He has punished his profligaie Cousin Will for trying to trick him in the matter of the horse he had won from him in a bet. True, there is still the major complication of his unfortunate betrothal to the elderly Lady Maria; but the Baroness Bernstein has taken Maria to Tunbridge Wells with her, and the chances are that that worldly old lady (nde Batrix Esmond) will find some way out of the innumerable difficulties of the affair.
Meantime, Harry has fallen by the way-side-literally, in a riding accident. But he has been rescued by those Good Samaritans and new friends, the charming Lamberts-Colonel Lambert, Mrs. Lambert, and their twd young daughters, Theo and Hester. At their nouse he has been introduced to Colonel James Wolfe; and, fully recovered from his wound, is travelling with him now to Tunbridge. John Keir Cross

: SUNDAY SYMPHONY CONCERT

Campoli (violin)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Brahms had Joachim in mind when planning his Violin Concerto, and frequently asked the great violinist's advice; though in the end a number of his suggestions were not adopted. He it was, however, who played the Concerto for the first time, at Leipzig in 1879, with Brahms conducting. Like the Second Symphony, which is in the same key of D major, the Concerto was written at Portschach, an idyllic place by the Worthersee in the Austrian Alps, where Brahms loved to spend the summer months. Although the opening movement is generally smooth and pastoral in style, it has many elements of drama, and the soloist's powers are finely exploited. Serenity of mood and intricate decoration on the part of the viohnist mark the slow movement; and dancing rhythms the gypsy-like finale.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
