: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the National Old People's Welfare Council by Stuart Hibberd, M.B.E .
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Stuart Hibberd, Esq., [address removed]
The National Old People's Welfare Council brings together in one independent, non-political, undenominational body, all voluntary and statutory organisations concerned with the problems of old people. For the past nineteen years the Council has pioneered and promoted many services for the elderly and to this end has directly and indirectly initiated Old People's Welfare Committees throughout the country.
The number of old people in the population has increased steadily and so naturally has the work of the Council, which is a national focal point for information, advice, and practical help. Funds are urgently needed to continue its work.

by William Makepeace Thackeray
A serial in twelve episodes. freely adapted by Audrey Lucas
Episode 10
Other parts played by Janet Morrison. Eva Stuart and John Hollis
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
At Queen's Crawley, Pitt is obviously attracted to Becky and Lady Jane begins to regard her brilliant sister-in-law a little doubtfully. Old Osborne formally offers to make Georgy his heir, provided he comes to live with him. Eventually Amelia agrees after an emotional scene with her mother.
Lord Steyne persuades his wife to invite Becky to dinner at Gaunt House. He wants Becky to get rid of Briggs but she says she dare not as she has borrowed money from Briggs and cannot repay it. Steyne agrees to give her the money, Becky having asked for twice the sum due.
At Gaunt House the women guests are affronted when Becky appears, but when she sings all the men crowd around her at the piano.

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.
