Appeal on behalf of the Adoption Committee for Aid to Displaced Persons (Registered under the War Charities Act) by Christopher Chataway, M.P.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The resettlement of D.P.s who have been living in camps in Germany is in sight-they are the hard core who for twenty long years have waited, forgotten, in the shadow of these official camps. World Refugee Year has given a tremendous stimulus to the work of providing homes, jobs, work tools, and training courses for them, and the additional £ 500,000 it is planned to raise in 1960-61 is needed to ensure that the task is completed.

: 'THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE'

by Thomas Hardy
A serial in twelve episodes adapted for radio by Frederick Bradnum
Episode 2
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
It is the night of November 5. On the lonely road over Egdon Heath journeys Diggory Venn , the reddleman, coloured completely red by the dust of his trade. In the back of his van is a sleeping girl. There is a mystery about the girl-even to the one passer-by Venn will not reveal her name nor let her be seen. In fact she is Thomasin Yeobright , and today was to have been the wedding-day of herself and Damon Wildeve , owner of the Quiet Woman Inn.
Wildeve is alone at the inn watching one distant bonfire on the heath, close to the house where Captain Vye lives with his grand-daughter, Eustacia.
Now Diggory Venn has brought Mrs.
Yeobright to find her niece Thomasin, and he has left them alone on the road not far from the Quiet Woman Inn.

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.
