Appeal on behalf of the Clinic for Rheumatic Diseases, by Sir Thomas HORDER.
RHEUMATISM is well known to be a widespread complaint, but probably few people realize that it costs the country two millions a year in sick Taenefit, and over three million weeks of work. At a recent meeting held under the auspices of the British Red Cross Society it was decided to start a campaign to establish special clinics for the treatment of rheumatism, the first in London, followed by others in the centres of other thickly populated areas. The cost of the first will be £40,000 ; when founded, it will be self-supporting, and E18,000 has already been received. It is for help towards raising the remaining £22,000 that Sir Thomas Horder is to appeal tonight.
Contributions should bo addressed to Sir
Arthur Stanley , Rheumatic Clinic Fund, [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.
