An appeal on behalf of ST. JOSEPH'S NURSING HOME by EVELYN WAUGH
St. Joseph's Nursing Home for Incurables is a home for aged people of any religious denomination. Some of the patients are homeless and have no one to look after them; others cannot, for some reason, be cared for by their relatives. Some are bedridden, some totally paralysed.
Of the ninety persons now being cared for in the Home, thirty-five bedridden patients are housed in a wooden hut that has been condemned by the authorities. Not only must this hut be rebuilt ; the Sisters would like to extend, to build a home with a hundred beds in place of the thirty-five-bed hut.
This is the first time a public appeal has been made on behalf of the Home, which has been run for sixteen years on private subscriptions and contributions. But these sources cover only running expenses and allow nothing for reconstruction. £6,000 is required to enable the work to be begun, and a further £14,000 for it to be completed.
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.
