: Appeal by Dame MADGE KENDAL on behalf of Queen Charlotte's Maternity Hospital

T H R E E thousand
English mothers yearly die in childbirth. Many more lose their health just at the time when it is most essential for the well-being of the race that they should be able to give their children the utmost care. Queen Charlotte's, the premier national maternity hospital and training school, is fighting to improve this situation, and it has done great work both directly and by its training of doctors and nurses. But it is fighting against antiquated conditions and cramped quarters : the present buildings were erected in 1854. The hospital already owns the land for the extension that is the object of tonight's appeal, and £ 250,000 is needed to complete the work.
Dame Madge Kendal, who makes the appeal, is one of the groat actresses whose name will always live in the annals of the British stage. Her beautiful voice will rouse echoes in the memories of many listeners tonight.

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.
