: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of THE RHONDDA INSTITUTE FOR THE BLIND, by Mr. WILL JOHN , M.P. for
Rhondda West
Contributions will be gratefully received addressed to [address removed]
THE Institute has grown out of a less ambitious effort made in 1919 to provide Christmas cheer for the blind of the Rhondda Valley. So enthusiastic was the support given to the work that a Committee was formed to develop help in a more permanent form. Workmen contributed a penny each per week through the local Colliery lodges and the first section of the Institution was started in 1922. The total cost of the Institute was
£15,000, of which £5,000 was given by the Miners' Welfare Fund, and £10,000 by the workmen of the Rhondda in the form of weekly contributions. The Institution needs an annual income of £12,000 ; of this amount, £7,000 is secured as grants from government and local authorities, and from sales of the work of the blind, but £5,000 must be secured each year from voluntary sources. Because of idle Collieries, voluntary contributions have not reached £2,000 this year.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
