THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Synopsis

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.
An appeal on behalf of THE HIGHWAY CLUBS by CHRISTOPHER STONE , D.S.O.,
M.C.
The seven Highway Clubs are named after the once notorious Rat-cliff Highway, and serve the district between the Tower and RatclifT Cross through which it ran. They provide opportunities for many things which are often denied to the young workers in great cities-for games, sports and hobbies, camps, holidays, and convalescence ; for cultural and intellectual interests; for friendship, loyalty, and service. Their purpose is to create communities whose members can themselves enjoy greater fullness of life and become men and women who will make a saner and happier world. The main part of the membership of more than a thousand consists of boys, girls, and young men and women between fourteen and twenty-five.
Just when schemes were in hand for extending Club and Camp work, three buildings have been unexpectedly doomed to demolition. Last year, members contributed £2,500, and friends outside gave £3,200, but this did not suffice for maintenance and left nothing for the rebuilding on which the Clubs' very existence depends, and which must cost at least £15,000.
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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
