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.
An appeal on behalf of The Federation of Girls' Clubs by Lady Hamilton Grant.
The Federation of Girls' Clubs which was founded in 1886 as the Factory Helpers Union, is trying to help youth to make the most of its leisure time. Its 200 affiliated clubs are in all parts of the country-there are over 150 in London alone. Their members include factory workers, domestic servants and office workers, and the clubs seek to provide the young working girl with a place of her own in which to enjoy her leisure hours. Through friendly rivalry in handicrafts, cooking, sewing, 'keep-fit' exercises, singing, verse speaking, acting, and all forms of outdoor and indoor games, interests are stimulated and friendships formed enriching the lives of many who would otherwise be forlorn and stranded in our crowded cities. Holidays at home and abroad and rambles to places of interest also form part of the activities of the Federation. Nor are the sick and convalescent forgotten.
To maintain the services of the Federation, help is urgently needed. The work is maintained entirely by public subscription, and but for the support of private individuals, it could not carry on. This appeal was to have been made by Sir Hamilton Grant who died suddenly a fortnight ago. On his behalf, Lady Grant will ask listeners to support a cause in which he was deeply interested.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lady Hamilton Grant, [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.
