Appeal on behalf of the Birmingham Accident Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Norman Tiptaft , J.P.
The Birmingham Accident Hospital, which gives a twenty-four hours' a day service for seven days a week, took over the Birmingham Queen's- Hospital in April 1941. The new venture is a voluntary undertaking which is governed by representatives of the Birmingham City Council, the University, the Trades Unions, and the employers. The special Rehabilitation Centre which is being- built with the help of local industry will ensure that in the case of industrial accident the injured party will be specially refiued to return to his particular work. The Surgeon-in-Chief of the hospital, who had a distin guished career in London, has now set up an organisation to provide for the succour of 60,000 accident cases a 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.

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.
