Appeal on behalf of Aid to European Refugees (Registered under the War Charities Act 1940) by the acting Chairman, Mrs. Elisabeth Russell
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to
Mrs. Elisabeth Russell , [address removed]
'Aid to European Refugees' cares for Displaced Persons in Austria, Germany, and Italy, where many refugees are still living in camps, huts, and shanty settlements. Grants are given for rehousing, for rehabilitation and vocational training, in order that the refugee may become a self-supporting citizen. Work-shops and local industries are maintained in camps, and there are two special funds for the after-care of T.B. patients.

: Ernest Clark with Monica Grey and Roderick Lovell in « SOAMES FORSYTE, Esq.'

from John Galsworthy 's
' A Modern Comedy ' freely adapted by Muriel Levy
Part
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Soames Forsyte is astonished by a visit from Mr. Butterfield, who gives him some vital information concerning the treachery of the manager of the Providential Premium Reassurance Society (known as the P.P.R.S.), of which Soames is managing director.
He is particularly worried about the affairs of his daughter Fleur, and tells her that she ought to have a child. Fleur's husband, Michael Mont, is aware that Wilfred Desert is in love with her; but Fleur's heart is still with the man she did not marry-Jon Forsyte, son of Jolyon and Soames's first wife Irene. Meanwhile, Fleur has an unwise meeting with Wilfred Desert. June Forsyte unwittingly reveals to Michael the old story of Fleur's love for Jon.

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.
