Appeal on behalf of St. Vincent's Orthopaedic Hospital by Deryck Guyler
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
St. Vincent's Hospital was founded in 1912 as a home for crippled boys, but grew into an orthopaedic hospital for both adults and children. It is still independent of the National Health Scheme, and depends to a great extent on voluntary subscriptions and donations. A new physiotherapy department and new X-ray equipment are badly needed.

A serial in twelve episodes adapted for radio by Frederick Bradnum
EPISODE 6:
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
Wildeve, rejected by Eustacia, turned again to Thomasin Yeobright. This time there was no mistake over the marriage licence and the lonely wedding took place in the presence, unexpectedly, of Eustacia and of the reddleman Diggory Venn. Diggory, having helped to promote this marriage against his own interest, then vanished from Egdon Heath for many months.
Eustacia had -rejected her old love,
Wildeve because of Clym Yeobright, recently returned to his native heath after five years in Paris. Clym also had been drawn towards this proud and beautiful girl since their first strange meeting and now they met frequently. But his mother mistrusted Eustacia, partly because of the gossip which had linked her name with Wildeve's.

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.
