: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth, by Rex Palmer
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Rex Palmer, Esq., [address removed]
The Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth in St. John's Wood, London, celebrates its centenary next year. Founded in Great Ormond Street, it was placed under the care of the Sisters of Mercy, four of whom had been nurses in the Crimea with Florence Nightingale. In 1898 the hospital was transferred to St. John's Wood. St. John and St. Elizabeth is a general hospital. Equipped with 175 beds, it admitted a record total of 2,578 patients during its last financial year. Since the hospital is not state-controlled, it is mainly dependent on voluntary subscriptions. The hospital's need of support is very great indeed, especially when it is remembered that those who cannot afford to pay receive their treatment free.

: The Reith Lectures THE ENGLISHNESS OF ENGLISH ART

by Nikolaus Pevsner
3-Reynolds and Detachment
Sir Joshua Reynolds 's discourses to students of the Royal Academy express a doctrine which he himself never followed. Young painters, he said, were to study and imitate the antique and the historical, however wearisome this might seem at first, and thus avoid the vulgarity of the faithful portrait. Dr. Pevsner, finds the discrepancy between precept and practice profoundly English.
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.
