A broadcast describing the activities of The London Ambulance Service from
An Ambulance Station
County Hall, Westminster and A London Street
Every day there are scores of street accidents in London. Every day the slick white ambulances of the L.C.C. service are rushed North, South. East, and West, with clanging bells, to collect casualties and take them to the various hospitals. Tonight's programme is an effort to reconstruct the story behind a single street casualty, and to show how it is dealt with by the ambulance men. Microphones will be placed by the telephone switchboard of the County Hall, to which all calls in connection with the ambulance service come through, at the ambulance station at the Elephant and Castle, and in a street near the Waterloo Hospital, where the ' accident' has taken place. Messrs. Woodrooffe, Standing, and Snagge, respectively, will be at these various points to give listeners an account of what is going on.

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.
