: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Community of St. Francis at Dalston and their Home for Aged and Bedridden Women by Miss Gertrude Whitehill Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Community of St. Francis is an Anglican order working in the East End of London ministering to the needs of the poor, sick, and aged. Their chief work is in connection with a Home for
Aged and Bedridden Women with little or no means of support, many of them lonely and uncared for in their old age or slowly dying of some chronic illness.
No distinction of creed or class is made and the work is carried on mainly by the support of donations, the only definite income being the pensions of the old people. The post-war planning of East London has entailed the removal from their present Home and the setting up of a new Home at a cost of aproximately £ 12,000.

: ' THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE'

by Thomas Hardy
A serial in twelve episodes adapted for radio by Frederick Bradnum
EPISODE 3
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
One November evening the dusty red figure of Diggory Venn , the reddleman, returned to Egdon Heath. In the back of his van was an unhappy girl, Thomasin Yeobright , who was to have been married that day to Damon Wildeve , owner of the Quiet Woman Inn, but there had been a mistake in the marriage licence and she had left him.
Venn restored the girl to her aunt,
Mrs. Yeobright, and she took Thomasin to see Wildeve. Although he protested that he still wished to marry, later that night on the Heath he secretly met Eustacia Vye , the proud and beautiful grand-daughter of Captain Vye. Venn learned of this and, because he himself loved Thomasin, decided to watch for further secret meetings

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.
