Appeal on behalf of the Bedford Institute Association by May Scott, one. of the Association's workers
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed] The Bedfo.d Institute Association is closely linked with the Society of Friends (Quakers) and takes its name from Peter Bcdiord , a remarkable Quaker social reformer who had his business and home in the East End of London eai ly last century.
The Association now has six centres, one of which is especially nolabte for its adult educational p.og.amme, which attracts many of its seven hundred members from a distance. The others, which are mostly in the inner part of East London, aim at being neighbourhood centres, offering friendship and opportunities for a fuller life to local people of all ages. There are play centres for the children, and-for the older boys and girls — clubs with very varied programmes including summer camps and holiday parties. For the adults there are social clubs, drama groups, and handiciaits, and the old folk also find entertainment, warmth, hobbies, and companionship.

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.
