: GOLDSWAIN'S CHRONICLE

Five programmes based on the journals of Jeremiah Goldswain
Adapted and introduced by Anthony Delius
Reader, Bernard Miles
1 — ' To Return Home Quite Rich '
Jeremiah Goldswain was a sawyer who left Great Marlow at the age of 17 to become one of the ' 1820 Settlers' in the Eastern Cape. For 40 years he kept a daily record of the trials and surprises of that first generation in Africa; but his gusto and humour were as tenacious as his Buckinghamshire speech. The Journals were edited by Una Long.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Deaf Children's Society by Lady Templer
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lady Templer, The Deaf Children's Society, [address removed]
The Deaf Children's Society came into being in 1944, when a small group of parents of deaf children arranged to meet in order to support each other's hopes and allay each other's anxieties for their children's education, on which they realised their children's future happiness depended. Now the Society's membership numbers some 1,200 and includes members of the public whose imagination has been stirred bv the very magnitude of the task-how to teach children who cannot apprehend the sound of human speech to know the meaning of language, to communicate by speech, and to acquire knowledge and the usual skills. The Deaf Children's Society Information and Advisory Bureau acts as a friend and guide to parents: literature and instructional booklets prepared bv experts are available on request; meetings and courses of lectures are arranged and money is being provided for medical and technical research and for bursaries to student-teachers. The Society receives no Government grant for this work.

Dramatised as a serial in eleven parts by Muriel Levy
Part 8
Singer. Beth Boyd
Pianist. Cicely Hoye
Production by Robin Midgley
Sir Lawrence Mont sees Bobby Ferrar, on Hubert's behalf, at the Foreign Office. Meanwhile Adrian and all the family attend the sudden wedding of Jean Tasburgh and Hubert. Dinny is staying at the Ferses's house as a protection for Diana in case her mentally sick husband becomes difficult.
Jean, now in a stronger position as Hubert's wife, again pleads with Lord Saxenden to use his power against her husband's possible extradition. He gives her an introduction to Bobby Ferrar. They go to the Foreign Office with Hallorsen.
Hubert is brought up at Bow Street on a warrant and is ' remanded till the arrival of supporting evidence.'
Having gained her goodwill, Hallorsen again pleads with Dinny, but she is too concerned for Diana Ferse whose husband is becoming violent. Dinny takes the children to Hilary's. On her return, Diana greets her with the news that Ronald has disappeared.

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.
