Appeal on behalf of Virginia House Holiday Camp, by Viscount ASTOR
Of the many varied activities of Virginia
House Settlement, none has proved more successful than the work undertaken amongst the juvenile population of the district. The building has now a delightful nursery for the younger children, a gymnasium and a well-stocked library, besides a large hall where concerts and dances are regularly held.
But probably the event of the year to which the children most look forward is the Annual Holiday Camp at Maker, on behalf of which Viscount Astor will appeal this evening.
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.
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.
