The Week's Good Cause


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.
An Appeal on behalf of The Aylesbury After-Care Association by Lilian C. Barker, C.B.E., Director of the Association.
The work of the Aylesbury After-Care Association is to arrange for the future career and well-being of all Borstal girls and women convicts. Their welfare is the Association's one aim, and therefore if any of them falls sick before she has worked a sufficient time to obtain benefit, or loses her work, or if any other ill befalls, she knows that they are at hand all the time to assist financially and to give whatever help is necessary. The relationship is a very personal one, and is cemented by the friend or supervisor attached to every one of them, who not only reports to the Association as to the kind and extent of help needed, but at the same time is a real friend to her own protegee. All the help given costs money, and it is for this urgent present need the Association pleads to fill what is now an empty purse.
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.
