: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Field Lane Institution by Derek McCulloch , O.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Derek McCulloch , Esq., Field Lane Institution, [address removed]
Charles Dickens describes Field Lane in ' Oliver Twist' as a haunt of misery and vice in the shadow of St. Paul's. Here in 1841 a few Christian people began to care for the poorest of the poor by running Ragged Schools, a day nursery, night refuges for the homeless, clubs, and pioneer social service work of every kind. For a hundred and sixteen years the work has adjusted itself to changed forms of social need, and now a community centre maintains the great traditions of personal service.
There is also much concern for the welfare of old people, and five Homes for elderly people have been opened since the war. It is for the extension of two of these homes and to provide more nursing care that this appeal is made.

William Clark reports on men and movements seen in his journey to countries in West, East, and British Central Africa
5-The Needs of Nationalism
In his final talk Mr. Clark sums up his impressions of African nationalism. He believes it is inevitable that nationalist movements should increase in scope and determination. Does this mean that the territories of Africa will eventually unite, and will they unite against us? Are there any ways of meeting nationalist demands without jeopardising order and good government?

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.
