: The Week's Good Cause: Appeal on behalf of the Royal Association in Aid of the Deaf and Dumb

by the Rev. W.G. Pennyman
There is little need to stress the importance of work amongst the deaf and dumb, those unfortunates who are doubly cut off from the ordinary interests of their kind. The Association exists to help and protect them in every way from the early training of children before their admission into educational institutions to their employment and relief later in life.

The Rev. W.G. Pennyman, who makes the appeal, is Chairman of the Association, with which he came into contact as Vicar of St. Mark's, North Audley Street, as the old church in Oxford Street was in his parish. He has done very valuable work for its objects, and the foundation of the Ladies' Association was due to him.
The address to which donations should be sent is the Royal Association in Aid of the Deaf and Dumb, [address removed]


Speaker: Rev. W.G. Pennyman

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.
