Contributions will be gratefully received by [address removed]
THIS Society arranges for the visitation to and instruction of the Blind throughout the County, and supplies literature and appliances for Braille reading and writing. It makes a special point of assisting adults who. by accident or disease, lose their night, by teaching them Braille reading and writing and the use of various appliances for employment, instruction and amusement. It also arranges for eye treatment at hospitals, defraying where necessary travelling expenses and providing spectacles when recommended. In the workshops blind men and women are employed, the former in basket, mat, and brush making, and the latter in fancy basket work, chair-rescating, and weaving.
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.
