: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the Officers' Families Fund, by The Lady Violet
Astor
The Officers' Families Fund owes its origin to the South African War. During the war of 1914-1918 two appeals resulted in £I,000,000 being paid to the wives, widows, and relatives of officers of the Royal Navy, the Army, and the Royal Air Force who were in need. At the outbreak of the present war some £40,000 remained, sufficient only to meet the responsibilities and commitments occasioned by the last war. Nothing was available for a new war.
In view of the large calls for assistance to be expected, it has now been decided to confine the present scope to the Army alone, leaving the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force to be lpoked after by those funds dealing exclusively with their respective interests.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Lady Violet Astor Officers' Families Fund, [address removed]

: Evelyn Laye in 'CAFE AU LAYE'

A one-woman revue devised by Howard Thomas , presented by Mark H. Lubbock , with Charles Heslop , the BBC Theatre Chorus, the BBC Theatre Orchestra, leader Tate Gilder , conductor,
Stanford Robinson
Few musical-comedy actresses of recent years have more completely captivated their public than lovely Evelyn Laye. While her early successes were gained chiefly by merit of her beauty, she soon showed that she had brains, personality, and great stage talent as well.
In tonight's programme you will hear of her evolution as an artist-how she played Principal Boy, how she rose to the height of the musical-comedy stage, and how, recently, she has proved herself a first-rate cabaret artist.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
