Appeal on behalf of the London Federation of Working Boys' Clubs and Institutes by Wing. Commander Louis GRIEG , C.V.O. Boys' Clubs are situated in all the poorer parts of London, and the Clubs affiliated to the L.F.B.C. influence the lives of at least 8,000 boys of the critical ages of fourteen to eighteen. Listeners with sons of their own will sympathize with boys who at fourteen or fifteen are thrown into a hard world to help support their families. In the life of the working lad in a great city the few short hours between work and sleep are vital ones, and largely determine what sort of man he will become. The clubs are out to fill those hours in the right way. A bright, cheery place to meet his friends; good comradeship and healthy influences. Well-organized recreation. The ' team-spirit' which places others first, self last. A workable religion-these the clubs of the London Federation have striven to give their _ members for more than a generation.

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.
