'The Bandits'
Last of six talks by Gerald Durrell

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the British Council for Aid to Refugees by Sir Arthur Rucker , K.C.M.G., C.B., C.B.E., formerly Deputy Director General, International Refugee Organisation
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Sir Arthur Rucker , [address removed]
The British Council for Aid to Refugees was formed in 1950 by voluntary organisations interested in the welfare of displaced persons in this country who were victims of the second world war. A hostel is maintained in London, and another one in Barton-on-Sea, for elderly refugees who are supported by voluntary subscriptions from people in this country, but funds are needed to maintain a further ten people. The Council also needs money for individual welfare work with refugees in this country who are normally self-supporting but are in temporary difficulties.
Tonight's appeal is not for recent
Hungarian refugees, but rather to help to resettle those who have come from camps in Germany, Austria, and Italy where they lived for anything up to ten years.

: James Thomason in ' THE MOONSTONE'

by Wilkie Collins
Dramatised as a serial in eleven parts by Howard Agg
5—'The Shivering Sand ' and Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Sergeant Cuff's arrival to investigate the mystery of the disappearance of the moonstone has produced one important result: a smear made by a petticoat is discovered on the newly painted door leading to Rachel Verinder 's boudoir. In an effort to trace the garment that has caused the smear, Sergeant Cuff orders a search of all the wardrobes in the house only to be baulked by Rachel's refusal to tender her own keys.
Convinced that one of the maids,
Rosanna Spearman , is suspected of the theft of the diamond, Gabriel Better -edge does his best to shield her; but needlessly, for, as Sergeant Cuff takes him by the arm and leads him to the Shivering Sand, he learns that Rosanna is merely an instrument in the hands of some other person, to whom the Sergeant, as yet. will give no name.

: WHAT IS AN EDUCATED MAN ?

A discussion between
Noel Annan
Provost of King's College.
Cambridge
Stuart Hampshire
Fellow of All Souls College. Oxford
P. B. Medawar , F.R.S.
Professor of Zoology at University College. London
Recent discussion on educational policy in Britain has tended to concentrate on practical methods of increasing the nation's output of graduates in science and technology. Very little has been said about the sacrifices in our traditional system of education which may be necessary to achieve this end. Are there any dangers in an increasingly scientific education? What special advantages are to be gained from a study of the humanities? How can we best combine scientific and humanistic elements to produce the educated man of the future?

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.
