: Children's Hour

Fourth Day of Request Week:
London
'Goodbye to the Bell Family'
The sixth and last part of the serial play written for Children's Hour by Noel Streatfeild
At the piano, Gwen Knight
Production by Josephine Plummer

This is the last instalment, in which we said 'Goodbye' to the Bell Family, but it is hoped listeners will enjoy hearing from them again. It really is not a sad occasion, because they have just heard the wonderful news that Mrs. Gage is coming with them to the new parish. By great good fortune she has managed to find a house there, and she and Mr. Gage are going to move into it almost at once. Preparations for the family's own move and also for the entertainment the children are getting up at the farewell party seem to. be going well — except that Ginnie's contribution is still an unknown quantity!

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
