: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Hospital of St. John and St. EJizabeth, by Father Gordon Albion
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Father Gordon Albion, Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth, [address removed]
The Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth in St. John's Wood, London, is a General Hospital and is not under the National Health Service. It was originally founded in Great Ormond Street in 1856 when it was placed under the care of the Sisters of Mercy who had just returned from the Crimean War, where, with Florence Nightingale, they had nursed the sick and wounded.
The Hospital, which is still under the care of the Sisters of Mercy, has always been closely associated with the Sovereign and Military Order of St. John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta, a member of which, ninety-four years ago, built its beautiful church, and whose members still take an active part in its management.

: « WIVES AND DAUGHTERS'

The novel by Mrs. Gaskell adapted as a serial in six parts by Mabel Constanduros
PART 4
Produced by Bertram Parnaby in the BBC's North of England studios
Molly Gibson and her step-sister Cynthia Kirkpatrick rapidly become friends. Roger and Osborne Hamley visit them occasionally, but the death of Mrs. Hamley overshadows their growing friendship. Roger returns to Cambridge and wins great academic success. The secretly married Osborne remains at home stranged from and despised by his father. Cynthia obviously dislikes Mr. Preston, Lord Cumnor's land-agent, who tries unsuccessfully to engage her attentions, particularly at the Hollingford Charity Ball.

: BACH and CHOPIN

played by Ronald Smith (piano)
Chopin's second set of studies, Op. 25, was composed during the years 1832-6, soon after he had settled in Paris. It begins with the one in A flat (which Schumann said was ' rather a poem than a study') and includes the Studies in F minor, G sharp minor (in thirds), D flat (in sixths), G flat (' Butterfly's Wings'), B minor (in octaves), A minor (' Winter Wind '), and the great final Study in C minor.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
