: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Christian Alliance of Women and Girls by George Cansdale
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Christian Alliance of Women and Girls works mainly through clubs, hostels, and holiday homes, and helps many women and girls physically, mentally, and spiritually. Young girls enjoy happy evenings in the clubs, and older women are also welcomed. In charge of each branch is a leader, qualified to help those in her care towards the highest ideals of Christian womanhood. Many parents are thankful that a happy ' home from home' is provided for students and business girls in the residential hostels run by the Alliance; but more hostels are needed, especially in our big cities. Holidays, too, at reasonable cost in country and seaside holiday homes bring encouragement and refreshment to many.

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.
