Appeal on behalf of the Clergy Homes and Clergy Widows Funds of the Church of England Pensions Board by its Vice-Chairman, Viscount Ingleby
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Viscount Ingleby, [address removed]
The Church of England Pensions Board provides residential homes (including a nursing home for the chronic sick), flats, and bungalows for elderly clergymen who must vacate the parsonage upon retirement, and accommodation for some of the widows of clergymen who must move out within two months of bereavement. Clergy widows and elderly maiden daughters who have insufficient on which to live are awarded annual pension grants.

: Ursula Howells in ' FLOWERING WILDERNESS'

by John Galsworthy
Dramatised as a serial in nine parts by Muriel Levy
PART 2
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Sir Lawrence Mont, uncle of Dinny Charwell, tells the story of Dinny, and of Wilfrid Desert who once loved Fleur Forsyte and was eventually best man at her wedding. Wilfrid returns from the Middle East with a skeleton in his cupboard. Dinny is unaware of the nature of his trouble, and meeting him by chance is immediately much attracted to him, even though Fleur warns her against him. The attraction is mutual, and Wilfrid plans further meetings with Dinny, ignoring the veiled hints by one Jack Muskham.

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.
