: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of Student Movement House by the Bishop of Bristol, the Rt. Rev. F. A. Cockin
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to the Bishop of Bristol, [address removed]
Student Movement House was founded in 1917 as a memorial to British students who fell in the first world war, and is a Christian centre for discussion and community life for the large international student population of London. All students are welcome to the activities of the House; and the resident community, the core of its life, is a fellowship of men and women of many races and creeds.
Increased funds are urgently needed to maintain the work.

: ' EUSTACE AND HILDA'

by L. P. Hartley
Adapted and produced as a serial in ten parts by Archie Campbell
10—' The Shrimp and the Anemone '
The action takes place in Venice and at Anchorstone. The year is 1922
Eustace's book is nearly finished. At the Hotel Splendide, he recognises in Mrs. Alberic, a pretty young divorcee, his childhood's sweetheart Nancy Step-toe, and over dinner they lament the lost years. But Nancy is quickly forgotten when, a few days later, Eustace hears that Dick Staveley has jilted Hilda.
At a party in the Palazzo Sfortunato,
Lady Nelly announces the completion of Eustace's novel, but as her guests crowd round to congratulate him, he receives an urgent summons to return at once to Anchorstone where Hilda lies paralysed.
Before leaving Venice he has a chance encounter with Dick. In a violent scene Eustace brands him as Hilda's betrayer but faints in the process. Later Dick explains his actions and begs Eustace's understanding and forgiveness.

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.
