: TO COMFORT ALWAYS

A series of six programmes about mental health, bringing from-the-spot evidence of how it concerns us
'To cure sometimes,
To relieve often,
To comfort always.'
— Edward L. Trudeau
2- Feeble Mind and Feeble Body
Neither Wembley nor Hampden Stadium is big enough to hold all the mental defectives registered and under supervision in the United Kingdom. Out of every eleven children born, one is educationally sub-normal.
The programme is concerned with the difference between mental illness and mental deficiency; the fallacy that feeble-mindedness must be inherited; and methods of care. It also touches on problems of maintaining mental health in old people.
Narrator. James McKechnie
Script by J. S. Campbell
If you have questions on these subjects, please write to ' Mental Health,' Broadcasting House, Queen Margaret Drive, Glasgow, W.2. A panel of specialists will deal with points raised by correspondents in the final programme of the series on Tuesday, June 4.

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.
