An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL NATIONAL HOSPITAL FOR CONSUMPTION, Ventnor, by The Lord EBBISHAM,
G.B.E., President of the Hospital The Royal National Hospital for Consumption, Ventnor, founded in 1867, was among the pioneers of open-air treatment for tuberculosis. Since those days open-air treatment has been supplemented by many advances in medical treatment, but the Hospital still retains its place as one of the leading hospitals for the treatment of this disease.
It is situated in Ventnor on account of the climate, but patients come from all over the British Isles and its 157 beds are always full. The work is therefore of national importance.
Advances in treatment are saving the lives of many who a few years ago would have had little hope of recovery, but the annual expenditure exceeds £ 27,000 and the assured income is less than £ 3,000 a year.

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.
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.
