: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Professional Classes Aid Council by Wilfred Pickles, O.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Wilfred Pickles, Esq.,[address removed]
For the past 35 years the Professional Classes Aid Council has, by means of voluntary contributions, been relieving distress among professional men and women and their families overtaken by disaster. Last year £ 15,922 was distributed in grants to the aged and permanently sick, to those in temporary difficulty to restore them to independence, and to young people for education and training.
Funds are urgently needed if the Council is to be able to meet the ever-increasing calls upon its limited resources.

: ' EUSTACE AND HILDA'

by L. P. Hartley
Adapted and produced as a serial in ten parts by Archie Campbell
2—' The Lion in the Path'
Children:
Grown-ups:
Pianist, Cicely Hoye
The action takes place at Anchorstone, an East Anglian resort, in 1905 Eustace and his sister Hilda are inseparable. Together they play on the Anchorstone sands where, one day, Eustace is horrified to find an anemone in the act of devouring a shrimp. Oblivious of the possible analogy between themselves and the tiny creatures in the pool, the children try to rescue the shrimp—but only succeed in destroying the anemone as well.
Hilda resents her brother's friendship with pretty little Nancy Steptoe , and at a picnic with the Steptoes makes an awkward scene. The storm is soon forgotten, and on the homeward drive brother and sister, perched side-by-side in the box-seat of the hired * growler,* exchange mutual protestations of undying affection.

This week sees the centenary of one of the greatest contributions to human thought-the communication to the Linnean Society in London by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace of their theory of the origin of species by natural selection.

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.
