An Appeal on behalf of the Plymouth and Devonport branches of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, by the MAYORESS OF PLYMOUTH (Mrs. W. H. J. PRIEST) FOR thirtv-eight years Plymouth has had a branch of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and Devonport since 1907. These branches are kept alive through voluntary efforts of men and women. The object is to ensure for every child, irrespective of station in life. an endurable existence.
Last year 451 children were protected in the Plymouth district, and in the Devonport area 457—victims of neglect, ill-treatment and other wrongs. These figures can be left to speak for themselves, and if the usefulness of this cause is to be extended locally, the support of a wider circle is necessary.
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.
