Appeal on behalf of The Friend of the Clergy Corporation, by The Lady Cynthia Colville , D.C.V.O., J.P.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Friend of the Clergy Corporation was founded to provide pensions for the widows and elderly unmarried daughters of deceased clergymen of the Church of England, and is now celebrating its centenary, having been founded on St. Stephen's Day, 1849. These ' unpaid curates '-the wives and daughters of clergymen-are doubly bereaved when the husband or father dies, as it means at once leaving their only home. In fact their whole life is uprooted—husband or father gone, means of livelihood gone, home gone, position gone. Today the situation is further complicated by the difficulty of finding fresh accommodation-to buy even a cottage is usually beyond their purse, and to rent a house, or even rooms, is a difficult and expensive business. A pension for life at such a time, with the implication that somebody cares, brings hope and comfort and rekindles faith.

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.
