: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables, Putney, by the Duke of Devonshire, M.c.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to The Duke of Devonshire, Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables, [address removed]
The Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables was founded in 1854 by Dr. Andrew Reid for the purpose of caring for hopelessly crippled men and women who by disease, accident, or deformity are disqualified for the normal duties of life.
Patients, of all ages from twenty-one upwards and from all over the country, are those who can no longer be looked after in their own homes, but are happy in the knowledge that in this hospital they have the security and comfort of a home for the rest of their lives.
After 103 years this great voluntary
Hospital and Home still carries on the tradition of its founder * that every case should be treated hopefully.' The cost last year was more than £ 145,000. This year it will be more than £ 150,000, and the hospital will be faced with a deficit of about £ 20,000 unless voluntary income can be increased.

8-' Vital Evidence '
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Urged in flattering terms, Rachel Verinder is persuaded to accept the proposal of Godfrey Ablewhite to become his wife, but she asks that the news of their engagement should be kept secret until her mother has recovered from a heart-attack. But Lady Verinder does not recover, and Rachel is left under the care of Godfrey's father-Joshua Ablewhite. It is decided that she will stay with the Ablewhites in the house they have taken at Brighton, and thither she is accompanied by her legal adviser, Mr. Bruff.
Mr. Bruff, perturbed at Rachel's intention to marry Godfrey Ablewhite , a man whom he regards as an impostor and adventurer, confides the reasons for his distrust so forcibly that Rachel determines to break off her engagement and return to London at once.

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.
