A series of programmes in which Christians think about their faith and its living expression
' I am the Bread of Life'

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Multiple Sclerosis Society by Miss Emily MacManus C.B.E. ,
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Emily MacManus, The Multiple Sclerosis Society, [address removed]
The Multiple Sclerosis Society was founded in December 1953 to co-operate with the medical profession in the encouragement of research into the cause and cure of multiple (disseminated) sclerosis. It is setting up research fellowships in universities and hospitals to assist in finding the cause, the cure, or at least a remedy for the disease. It promotes the mutual help, comradeship, and welfare of those who have multiple sclerosis, and it now has branches for this purpose in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and many counties of England.

: ' WIVES AND DAUGHTERS'

The novel by Mrs. Gaskell adapted as a serial in six parts by Mabel Constanduros
PART 2
Produced by Bertram Parnaby in the BBC's North of England studios
Doctor Gibson is the local doctor at Hollingford, and a widower. His daughter Molly has recently been on a visit to Hamley Hall, where she makes an agreeable companion to Squire Hamley's ailing wife. While she is away Doctor Gibson becomes engaged to Mrs. Clare Kirkpatrick, one-time governess to Lord and Lady Cumnor's family, and now a widow. Molly hears the news with alarm, and in spite of kindly sympathy from the Hamley's younger son, Roger, she is obviously distressed as the time comes for her to be introduced to her future step mother.

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.
