: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE: Appeal on behalf of Homes for the Aged Poor, by Mrs. DUDLEY BAXTER (the Mayoress of Kensington)

FOR the poor person who has spent a lifetime of independence, achieved by constant hard work, but has not been so lucky as to save enough for the years when work is impossible, the necessity of passing the close of life in a Poor Law Institution is a real tragedy. To save such people from this tragedy is the object of tonight's Good Cause, which provides, at eighteen homes in London, a room rent free and medical attendance to some 180 aged poor.
Contributions should be sent to [address removed].

: BELGIAN NATIONAL PROGRAMME

THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
THE Belgian Composer, Gretry (1741-1813), began his musical life with a sore disappointment, and ended it with all kinds of honours and pensions. His disappointment lay in being turned out of a church choir as incapable at the age of eleven ; but when he found sympathetic masters, he got oh fast enough. At seventeen, he had written some little symphonies, and at eighteen he produced a Mass. Then he attracted the attention of a patron, who helped him to go to Italy. He was economical enough to travel to Rome on foot (falling in with an odd companion, a smuggler). He had still another rebuff there, for his master dismissed him as an incompetent student of composition.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
