The Week's Good Cause: Appeal on behalf of The Y.W.C.A.


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 primary object of the Y.W.C.A. is to help in ministering to the spiritual, mental, physical, and social needs of young women in the fifty different countries in which it works. In Great Britain there are more than 2,000 beds in the Association's hostels, over 12,000 girls have planned their holidays through its camps and Holiday Homes this summer. and, in Great Britain alone, the clubs serve some 40,000 girls weekly. The London Y.W.C.A. has long wanted a central club which would serve the girls of the City and the West End. A suitable site has at last been found, the foundation-stone of the now building having, in fact, been already laid in June last by H.M. the Queen. Mr. George Morgan , President of the London Y.W.C.A., and late President of the National Council of Women, will appeal for funds for the finishing of the building and for the general work of the Association at home and abroad.

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.
