The Week's Good Cause


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The B.B.C. Christmas Fund for Children.
'Sunday by Sunday throughout the year, the B.B.C. places itself at the disposal of charities and 'good causes' of all kinds, who have their chance to appeal to the generosity of listeners. Today for once it is appealing for a fund of its own, the proceeds of which will be divided amongst six famous charities working for children; and contributions are to be sent to The Announcer at Savoy Hill.
7.55 (Daventry only) Appeal by the Very Rev. The Dean of York on behalf of York Minster.
S.B. from Leeds
The Mother Church of the Northern Province, York Minster has stood through the centuries-on the site of the holy' well, where King Edwin of Northumbria was baptized by Paulinus 1,100 years ago. Of purest Gothic architecture throughout, the Minster is the largest Cathedral Church in this country.
But for all its magnificence, the Minster is grievously short of money, not only to pay its salaries and maintain its noble tradition of music and worship, but to keep its fabric in repair. Its outer roofs and stone-work and its windows now need some £50,000 to be spent upon them, and the Dean is hoping that tonight's appeal will enable him to go on with the work that must be done.
Contributions should be sent to the Very Rev. the Dean, [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.
