: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the British Home for Deaf and Dumb Women (Registered 'in accordance with the National Assistance
Act, 1948), by the Master of the Temple, the Rev. Canon T. R. Milford
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The British Home for Deaf and Dumb Women, founded in 1851, was for many years the only one of its kind in the United Kingdom. Applicants are still accepted from all parts of the country. Until recently it was supported entirely by voluntary contributions and is still largely dependent on these to maintain a home where deaf and dumb women, who are unable to work, may live in companionship with others in their world of silence.

: Robert Harris and Reginald Beckwith in ' AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS'

The novel by Jules Verne
Adapted as a serial in thirteen parts by Lance Sieveking
PART 3
Cast in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
It is 1872. Mr. Phileas Fogg, a wealthy and eccentric bachelor, made a wager at his club in London that he would go found the world in eighty days. He started that very evening, Wednesday, October 2, taking with him his French servant, Passepartout, and a carpet bag containing £20,000 in Bank of England notes. A landslide having blocked the line beyond Macon, Mr. Fogg bought a balloon for £2,000. In it he and his servant successfully crossed the Alps and came down in Italy.
Now it is Saturday afternoon, October 5, and their train is about to arrive at Brindisi.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
