: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Shoreditch, Hackney, and Highbury Housing Association by the President, Lady Cynthia Colville ,
D.C.V.O., D.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
This Association is a non profit-making Society which since before the war has been helping in the problem of housing in the Shoreditch, Hackney, and Highbury districts of London.
It has been particularly active in providing flats for families, and also devotes a good part of its work to the housing of old people, for whom it has built a housing estate in Highbury, whilst last month twenty-one new flats were opened in Hackney. All the present tenants were in desperate need of a home of their own until this was found for them by the Association. Many others, old and young, are waiting for the opportunity; but more money is needed if homes are to be provided.

: 'ST. IVES'

by Robert Louis Stevenson
Dramatised as a serial for broadcasting in eight parts by R. J. B. Sellar
2 — ' The Escape from the Rock '
Produced by James Crampsey in the BBC's Scottish studios
It is the year 1813, during the Peninsular War. The young Vicomte Anne de Keroual de St. Yves, known to his comrades in the French Army as Camp-divers, is the St. Ives of the story.
He has been taken prisoner-of-war and is lodged in Edinburgh Castle, where he falls in love with Flora Gilchrist, who comes to the Castle on visiting days with gifts for the prisoners. On hearing the news that his great-uncle is near to death and anxious to see him with a view to making him his heir, St. Ives, resolves to make a bid for freedom, fortune, and love. He and his fellow-prisoners plan an escape by night from the perilous Castle Rock.

: The Reith Lectures BRITAIN AND THE TIDE OF WORLD AFFAIRS

by the Rt. Hon. Sir Oliver Franks ,
G.C.M.G., K.C.B.
2-A Fellowship of Free Nations
In his second lecture Sir Oliver Franks examines the part Britain should play in the new Commonwealth. It is very important, he says, that we see the Commonwealth and our position and relationships within it as they are, and do not allow memories and habit to blur our perception. The independence of the members of the Commonwealth is no merely negative freedom. How can Britain sustain her leadership as one of a group of equal sovereign nations?
Next Sunday: ' The Atlantic Bridge' These lectures will be printed in ' The Listener '

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.
