: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Reed's School by Miss K. E. H. Mills
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
For 140 years Reed's School has been caring for fatherless boys and girls. This boarding grammar school does much for tlhose deprived of a father's influence and, with the children away in term time, it is often possible for their mothers to take up employment to augment slenderresources. Though Local Authont cs sometimes arrange to send childrento boarding schools they can only do this s on a limited scale, and Reed's School takes children who cannot get help elsewhere.
Many of the children's fathers were killed while on war service or as a result of air raids. Where the mothersare receiving pension allowances, these are paid to 'the School, and in additon each ma'her contributes according to her means.
The School takes an interest in welfare and gives great assistance in the choosing of careers. A large sum is needed each year to carry out this valuable work of preparing children to become good Citizens.

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.
