: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Woolwich Council of Social Service by Geoffrey Turberville , Chairman of the Council
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Woolwich Council of Social Service grew out of the pioneer social work of C. H. Grinling , who went to Woolwich in 1887. The Council links together people working for the common good, has done much by contributing service and ideas to important social projects, and has trained many social workers who now serve elsewhere.
This appeal is to help to clear the defici.t of £ 2,000 on the personal service work of the Council, which among its many services includes aid to those in distress or adversity, rehabifotation, holidays for old people, legal advice, and help for the sick in mind and body.

: ' THE EUSTACE DIAMONDS'

by Anthony Trollope
Adapted for broadcasting in twelve parts by H. Oldfield Box
Episode 9
Cast in order of speaking
Produced by Archie Campbell
-Lucy Morris has now been several months in her new situation, as companion to that disagreeable old woman, Lady Ambleside. Frank Greystock, still doubting the wisdom of his engagement to her (and still deeply involved in Lizzie's affairs) has continued to neglect her. But Lucy will not admit, even to herself, that she has lost faith in him; and so she has refused Lady Fawn's pressing invitation to return to Fawn Court.
Lizzie, after her long stay at Portray
Castle, has just returned to London. But her journey from Scotland has been attended by a most dramatic incident-the theft, at Carlisle, of that iron box in which she has always kept the Eustace diamonds.

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.
