: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of LuDun Limited, a Bedfordshire Workshop for the severely disabled, by Kay Hammond
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Kay Hammond , [address removed]
The LuDun Workshop was inaugurated by a handful of Bedfordshire people to fill an urgent need by finding permanent sheltered work for the severely disabled. Ex-Service and civilian sufferers with numerous disabilities are catered for: all are too disabled ever to return to normal employment. First they receive individual training under constant medical supervision and, when proficient within their capacity, they are given work in the workshop for which they earn a living wage. Their general health improves and their minds find peace.
Three years ago funds were collected and a specially designed workshop was built to take in forty disabled people. Unfortunately, the rise in builders' wages and materials exceeded the estimate by £ 2,000, and it is for this urgent need that this appeal is made.

: James Thomason in 'THE MOONSTONE'

by Wilkie Collins
Dramatised as a serial in eleven parts by Howard Agg
6—' The Three Prophecies ' and Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Sergeant Cuff's visit with Gabriel Betteredge to the fishing village of Cobb's Hole, with the discovery that Rosanna Spearman has purchased a tin box and a length of chain in order to bury something on the shore, seems to involve the poor girl still deeper in the disappearance of the Moonstone. But the news that Rachel intends leaving for Frizinghall the next day, and the Sergeant's suspicion that the Moonstone is in her possession, is followed quickly by another startling development: the disappearance of Rosanna and the traces of her footprints across the shore into the ooze of the Shivering Sand.

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.
