: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Cecil Houses (Inc.) by the General Manager and Secretary, Mrs. E. Gordon Phillips
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Mrs. Gordon Phillips, Cecil Houses, [address removed]
Cecil Houses Inc., founded in 1926 by Mrs. Cecil Chesterton ., maintains three lodging houses for homeless women and a residential club for business girls in London. Once the initial cost of the building has been raised by public subscription, each enterprise becomes self-supporting. A residential club in Wedlake Street, Kensington, was opened in February, 1953, for seventy-two aged women pensioners from all over Britain.
Funds are urgently needed to clear the balance of the building debt, also to provide a special annexe for residents who require nursing care.

: 'EUSTACE AND HILDA'

by L. P. Hartley
Adapted and produced as a serial in ten parts by Archie Campbell
5—' Concerto for Two Violins '
The action takes place at Oxford and in Willesden. The time: 1921-1922
Some weeks after Miss Fothergill's death, the children are out driving. From something Craddock, the cabby, tells him, Eustace concludes that he, too, is about to die and sadly decides to make a will.
On the beach he discloses this to Hilda who upbraids him for such morbid speculations. Nancy Steptoe and Dick Staveley arrive on horseback and Dick breaks the news that Miss Fothergill has bequeathed Eustace a fortune and that he is soon to go as a boarder to Dick's old school.
Eustace plans to share his legacy with Hilda-and together they trace out the division on the sand.

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.
