: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Alliance Club for overseas students, by George Cansdale
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to George Cansdale, [address removed]
The Alliance Club provides hostel accommodation for students from overseas who are staving in London, and is run under the auspices of the Evangelical Alliance. The purpose of the Club is to ensure that students from other lands should find themselves in an atmosphere resembling as far as possible that of a Christian home, instead of becoming victims of undesirable influences.
Those who reside at the Club are, in many cases, men who will be leaders in their own lands on their return. While residents pay for their board and lodging, money is urgently required to meet capital expenditure and heavy depreciation as well as for the purposes of extending the work.

: TOWARDS THE CONQUEST OF POLIOMYELITIS

Narrator, Hugh Burden
What is known about this perplexing disease? Why is it that the very advances in public hygiene which have greatly reduced the dangers of many epidemic infections have nevertheless increased those of poliomyelitis? Why is it that the great majority of us are harmlessly infected by it, while a small minority suffer what may be a dreadful and disabling illness? What causes it, and how may it be controlled?

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.
