STARTED in 1889, this institution is now the largest of its kind in Great Britain and probably the largest in the world. The area over which its nursing work is carried out covers nine square miles of the crowded and poverty-stricken districts of West Ham, East Ham, and the Victoria Docks, Canning Town and Tidal Basin. The nursing staff numbers 230; 5,345 maternity cases were attended last year, and 3,442 cases of general illness ; 6,000 mothers and 20,000 children are on the books of the Welfare Centres, and the Training School sends its pupils to every county in England and Wales.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
