: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Wellclose Square Fund by Geoffrey Johnson-Smith , M.P.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
In the last eighteen months Church House, Wellclose Square, Stepney, has given shelter to more than seventy prostitutes and girls in moral danger, twenty-five of whom have gone back to their homes. Funds are now needed for a house outside London to give a better chance of rehabilitation: the aim is to keep open a way of escape and to train the girls for a normal way of life. The work is under an inter-denominational Committee with the Bishop of Stepney as President.

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

The novel by Jules Verne
Adapted as a serial in thirteen parts by Lance Sieveking
PART7
Cast in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
Repeated on Tuesday at 3.0
It is now October 22, 1872. Mr. Phileas Fogg has gained twenty-four hours on the time-table he planned for going round the world in eighty days to win his £ 20,000 wager. This is the twentieth day. Everything depends on catching trains and steamers without a moment to spare. Once he bought a balloon; another time, an elephant. Mounted on the elephant, with his servant Passepartout and Sir Francis Cromarty , he comes upon some fanatical Brahmins about to burn alive a beautiful girl in a ceremonial Suttee. Though the delay may be serious, they attempt to rescue her, succeed brilliantly, and gallop off on the elephant.

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.
