THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Synopsis

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 ELIZABETH GARRETT ANDERSON HOSPITAL FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN, by Dame
SYBIL THORNDIKE , D.B.E., LL.D.
The appeal this evening is for a new Nurses' Home and Private Patients' Wing for the Elizabeth Garrett Ander son Hospital for Women and Children, 144, Euston Road, London, N.W.i. It was the first, and is still one of the few, hospitals to be staffed entirely by women for women and children, and Dame Sybil Thorndike , who is to make the appeal, is a great admirer of the splendid work done there for them.
The hospital has quite outgrown the old Nurses' Home. A number of nurses and all the maids are lodged at present in several small houses that cannot be used any longer. As soon as a new Nurses' Home and Wing for Private Patients can be built, fifteen beds in the hospital will be released for general patients, and it can be imagined what that will mean towards coping with a waiting list of 250. Dame Sybil hopes for a big response to help the hospital give its hard-working nurses better quarters, and to extend its work among the patients who flock to its doors.
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.
