: OUR NEIGHBOURS '

How women may help in the problems of receiving areas
A talk by Grace Drysdaje
Grace Drysdale 's long association as Warden of the Edinburgh University Settlement has made her a familiar figure in Scottish public life. She is now Deputy Officer for Scotland of the National Council of Social Service, lending her great experience in the cause of the ' blitzed '. She will explain her theory that the Settlements which in peace-time were the centre of education and enlightenment in the new districts surrounding our big cities can in wartime become second-line rest centres for receiving those who are homeless after air raids.
In the Settlement mother and children can find rest and kindly help, and the wardens can deal with their problems and soften the blow suffered by the loss of their homes.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
George Parker (baritone)
John Ireland has written only a few orchestral works. One. of the finest is ' Mai-Dun ', which appeared in 1921. The music, which is austere and impressive, suggests the nobility and dignity of a bygone age. ' Mai-Dun ' is known to readers of Thomas Hardy 's Wessex tales as the prehistoric camp now called Maiden Castle. It lies near Dorchester, in the heart of the Hardy country.

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.
