: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Polish Air Force Association Benevolent Fund, by Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Douglas of Kirtleside, G.C.B., M.C., D.F.C.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Douglas of Kirtleside, [address removed]
Established in 1945 and registered under War Charities Act, the Polish Air Force Association has been responsible for the welfare of ex-members of the Polish Air Force who served under British command throughout the last war and of their dependants. The Association's Benevolent Fund gives priority to widows, orphans, and disabled. The rising cost of living necessitated a considerable increase of grants, resulting in a deficit of £ 1,000 which has to be covered from the diminishing resources.
The result of this appeal will influence to a very great extent the Benevolent Fund's possibility to help in many genuine cases of distress.

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.
