THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Appeal on behalf of the P.M. Boys' Club by Ian Hunter
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The P.M. Boys' Club (so roamed because at the time of its foundation it was open only in the afternoons) is designed to provide for the spiritual and physical well-being of boys up to the age of eighteen who are 'working in hotels, clubs, and restaurants in -the West End of London.
The Club was originally started under the sponsorship of Toc H some s years ago, and its first location was in Greek Street, Soho Now it has moved to a bouse in Eccleston Square where there is living accommodation for a certain number of boys, who are in the charge of a resident warden and matron. All kinds of dub activities take place; outdoor games such as football, tennis, and swimming; lectures are given; and crafts and hobbies are taught. Everything possible is done at the Club to create the background of a family life.
The Club is affilated to the L.C.C.
Youth Employment Bureau, the London Federation of Boys' Clubs, and the National Association of Boys' Clubs. An annual grant is received from the L.C.C. and the boys themselves contribute a small sum, according to what they can afford, to help with the day-to-day running expenses, but the Club is, to a great extent, dependent on voluntary donations.

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.
