The Week's Good Cause


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.
The Winter Distress League. Appeal by Mrs. ETHEL M. Wood , Chairman of the Finance Committee of the League.
THE aim of the Winter Distress League is to create employment, to substitute work for doles, and to restore the nation's greatest asset -independence-by giving men a chance to earn. It does this in several different ways; by the Hospital Employment Scheme, by which the labour of unemployed men is used for urgent work that could not otherwise be carried out for lack of funds-in which cases Trads Union rates are paid to the men employed ; by care of the children of the unemployed, by a mending service for women, and by the provision of clothing to those who are in danger of being prevented by their ragged appearance from even applying for work with any hope of success. In all these ways it is helping the deserving unemployed-amongst whom ex-service men and their families aro always given preference-not merely to keep going, but to get on their feet again, and in many cases it is able to install, them in permanent jobs.

The Week's Good Cause

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.
