: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Caxton House Settlement, by Peter Brough
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Caxton House Settlement is the result of the combined efforts of a group of social workers and clergy. Through their initiative a survey of part of the neighbourhood of Islington was undertaken in 1943, and the report clearly revealed the need for establishing a Residential Settlement. With an initial donation of £2 Is. 8d. an appeal for funds was launched, and in January 1944 Caxton House opened its doors.
The Settlement is intter-denominational, open to those of all ages who need friendliness, encouragement, and help. An active Youth Club caters for the young people, and other activities are organised for children, parents, and grandparents.
Apart from a grant from public funds towards the expenses of the youth work, and small subscriptions from members of the various clubs, the Settlement relies entirely upon voluntary support.

: 'PHINEAS FINN'

by Anthony Trollope
Adapted by H. Oldfield Box
Episode 11
Produced by Norman Wright
Devastated by the news that Violet Effingham has, after all, become engaged to Lord Ohiltern, Phineas has made up his mind to join his friend Mr. Monk in his battle for the oppressed Irish smallholders, although this may entail Phineas's resignation from his under-secretaryship.
The Earl of Brentford has found out about the duel, and in his anger has told Phineas that their friendship must be at an end. Lady Laura, accused by her husband of being Phineas's mistress, has left him and gone back to live with her father. And Violet Effingham has now broken off her engagement to Chitern, who, despiite his good fortune, has been proving as intractable as ever.

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.
