: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of British Medical Missions in India and Pakistan, by Major-General D. J. Wilson-Haffenden, C.B.E.
Contributions for the medical service of all mission boards with work in India and Pakistan, who are members of the Conference of British Missionary Societies, will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Major-General Wilson-Haffenden[address removed]
Both in this appeal and in the service that precedes it, attention is drawn to the work of British missionaries in India and Pakistan. The Minister of Health in India says: 'I for one will always welcome medical missionaries who come here as servants of sick and suffering humanity,' while Pakistan invites British missionary co-operation in medical training and service to the very limit of its powers.

Mary is now back at Brotherton, staying with the Dean, her father; while Lord George, obstinately determined that he will make no move towards ending the separation with his wife till she shows herself ready to obey him, remains sulking at Munster Court. But, despite her hosband's unreasonable behaviour, Mary is quite astonished by the strength of her longing - for him. She cannot and will not desert her father, but when she knows that she is to have a child, she feels she must write to Lord George and tell him the news.

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.
