: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Guild of Aid for Gentlepeople and Homes of Rest for Gentlewomen by Wendy Hiller
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Wendy Hiller , [address removed]
The Guild of Aid for Gentlepeople gives help to men and women of gentle birth or good education who by reason of old age, illness, or other disability are unable to work. The help given is chiefly by way of small monthly grants reconsidered at stated intervals; also by grants of money for special needs. The Homes of Rest for Gentlewomen have three homes for women of education, with an income not exceeding £ 250 a year, and under the age of seventy-five at time of entry. Each resident pays according to her income and is cared for to the end of her life.

Dramatised as a serial In nine parts by Muriel Levy
PART 6
Other parts played by John Bryning , Arthur Keane Will Leighton. Peter Wilde
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
A bombshell drops among Dinny Char -well's family, for Wilfrid Desert has allowed his publisher to make a statement in the press admitting that his poem The Leopard' is roughly his own story-the story of his unfortunate change of religion at pistol point when he was out East.
Dinny is now engaged to Wilfrid; but how is the world going to accept the fact that her fiance has turned Moslem?
Fleur's husband, Michael Mont , has a stormy scene with the publisher, but the damage is now done and the book of poems is published. The family apprehensively awaits public condemnation.

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.
