6-Portrait of an Unknown Man by Hugh Falkus
From boyhood the speaker has been used to boats. The man, a most unpractised yachtsman, was encountered on a mud-bank. They were together only a few hours, seventeen or eighteen years ago; but the impression made on Hugh Falkus then has proved durable and vivid.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of The Friends of the Poor, by Ernest Thesiger
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Friends of the Poor was founded nearly fifty years ago by Miss A. R. Collins , C.B.E., who celebrated her hundredth birthday last Tuesday.
The Society exists for two main purposes — relief for those in need and to provide homes for elderly gentlepeople. It is for these homes that the Appeal is made. There are six residential homes where more than two hundred gentle-people are cared for, as well as nursing homes and sick bays where residents who are ill or too old to look after themselves receive expert care and attention.
The work of the Society's homes is not only for the old. There is, in addition. a convalescent home, Handcross Park. as well as a recent gift of a house in Devonshire to be used as a rest-holiday -home for professional women

: ' OLIVER TWIST '

by Charles Dickens
Adapted for radio in twelve parts by Giles Cooper
6— ' A Proposal'
Produced by Charles Lefeaux
Oliver, having been kidnapped by Nancy Sikesand Bill Sikes, is hurried away to Fagin's house where he is received with great glee. He tries unsuccessfully to escape. Nancy prevents Sikes from setting his dog on him and defies Fagin when he remonstrates with her. Meanwhile Mr. Brownlow has offered a reward for information about the boy, and the notice has been read by Mr. Bumble, who is visiting London. He tells Mr. Brownlow that Oliver has always been worthless and dishonest. Fagin and Bill Sikes plan a burglary at Chertsey. A boy is needed to enter by a small window, and the ' fence ' persuades Bill to use Oliver, knowing that once the boy is incriminated he will be in his power, thus satisfying his own ends and those of Monks. Nancy takes Oliver to Bill Sikes' house so that they shall be ready to start early the next morning.

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.
