The Week's Good Cause
In January, 1933, a society was founded for the purpose of helping to rehabilitate in business men who have lost executive positions in commerce and industry owing to trade depression. This society has developed into the British Executive Employment Society with a membership of, roughly, 1,600, consisting of trained and experienced men from all branches of business and the technical professions. The qualifications of each member are very carefully classified so that the right men can be found immediately for vacancies which the Society is asked to fill by employers needing trained men. It has been assisted by generous donations from the directorates of large business firms and institutions.
It is hoped that the Society will grow in time to be a national body representative of the administrative type of business man. This cannot be achieved, however, without the direct help and interest of men of this class who have never known what unemployment means, and of firms who may find it necessary to utilise the Society as a means of replenishing their depleted staffs as industry recovers. Employed executives can help by becoming Associate Members, and firms by becoming annual subscribers. In fact, any donations, however small, will be welcomed.
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.
