An appeal on behalf of THE CHILDREN'S PLAY CENTRES
FUND by Mrs. G. M. TREVELYAN , C.H.,
The Children's Play Centres Fund for London, founded by the late Mrs. Humphry Ward , is now one of the largest organisations catering for the children's happiness and safety out of school hours. The committee are making a ' Fortieth Anniversary Appeal' for £5,000 to enable them to open more centres, both in the oldest and poorest districts and in the new estates, where there are now thousands of children who have little or nothing to do in the evening hours. The London County Council lend their cheerful buildings and the committee supply a trained staff and an attractive equipment of toys, games, cricket sets, footballs, etc. Some 15,000 children are kept happily occupied and out of danger every evening in winter, and about 20,000 in the summer holidays. But London needs more centres!
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to[address removed]

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
