' Possible Careers', No. 3-
' Nursing as a Career', by Mrs. Lucy SEYMER , M.A., S.R.N.
Today it is the turn of the girls. and the career to be discussed is nursing.
Mrs. Lucy Seymer is going to tell you exactly what will lie before you if you decide to become a probationer in one of our general training hospitals, and no one is better able to tell you. She took her degree nt Oxford, served as a V.A.D. in the War, and then went through the three years' training at St. Thomas's Hospital, and so became a qualified nurse. Besides all this practical experience, she has written 'A General History of Nursing ' and has been a lecturer at the College of Nursing. So if you have any ideas about taking up this life, you must listen to all she says this afternoon.

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.
