WHILST the Rev. H. R. L.
Sheppard was in active command at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, he made the monthly broadcast service the most important fact, for many listeners, of the religious programmes. Both his own sermons and those of the other preachers whom he invited to occupy his pulpit, brought hope and comfort to thousands of people who may never have seen the lofty spire and smoke-stained portico of the famous London church. Under his successor, Canon McCormick, St. Martin's and its services, broadcast and otherwise, have lost nothing of their appeal, but the reappearances of ' Dick ' Sheppard are still eagerly-awaited occasions. This evening, when the Christmas Fund that he founded is the broadcast Week's Good Cause, is a particularly appropriate moment for one of them.
Incorporated in this Service will be an appeal on behalf of ST. MARTIN-IN-THE-FIELDS CHRISTMAS FUND
ST. MARTIN'S CHURCH occupies a unique position in the life of London, and its Vicar has exceptional opportunities of coming into contact with cases of really hard luck all over the country. This Fund was started by Mr. Sheppard several years ago, to help to bring a little Christmas cheer into homes that would otherwise be without it. Two points worth noting are that there are no administrative expenses, and that grants find their way where they are least expected : in fact, applications for assistance are never considered.

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.
