An Appeal on behalf of THE FRIENDS OF THE POOR, by The Hon. Mrs. SYDNEY MARSHAM
This Society tries to secure for those in distress the form of assistance most appropriate to their need. Of recent years the State has been able to provide for many by way of Health and Unemployment Insurance and Old Age Pensions, but there are still numberless gaps to be bridged and hundreds of people who do not fit into any State scheme.
The Friends of the Poor provide coal and other comforts for the old and sick, they make small allowances to supplement inadequate pensions, and they help in tiding over unexpected crises. In addition to all this, the Society maintains a club and a nursing home for ladies of small means, and a home where unfurnished rooms can be had at a nominal rent. They also have a children's nursing home where little patients from the London hospitals are received.
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.
