Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother is Patron of the Fund, in which fourteen Institutions, Societies, and Associations for the blind combine their metropolitan appeal. Services assisted include children's welfare, special schools, professional and industrial training, employment, residential accommodation, holiday and recuperative homes, as well as Braille library facilities, the production of periodicals, music, and no less than 200 items of helpful apparatus designed for work and leisure. The Fund is thus an organisation through which 16,000 adults and children are helped to surmount the handicap of blindness.

: Nigel Stock in 'THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE'

by. Thomas Hardy
A serial in twelve episodes adapted for radio by Frederick Bradnum
EPISODE 12
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
Eustacia felt unable to defend herself fully against the broken-hearted rage of Clym and left him and the cottage for ever, not caring whether she lived or died. Eventually she reached her grand-father's house. On November 5, Charley, thinking to please her, lit a bonfire which Wildeve mistook for her signal. He asked her to run away with him. Late one night she left her grandfather's house to meet him for the journey.
Meanwhile Clym, repenting of his anger too late, sent Eustacia a letter asking her to return. That same wild night Captain Vye discovered her absence and hastened to Clym's cottage. There he found Thomasin, newly arrived, to tell of the disappearance of her husband, Wildeve.

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.
