Appeal on behalf of The National Adoption Society
Registered under the Adoption of Children (Regulation) Act, 1939 by Bob Monkhouse
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The National Adoption Society was founded more than forty years ago. Since that date nearly 11,000 babies have been given the benefit of a good home, providing the child with a sense of security and producing a happy and stable member of society.
It is now proposed to open a Mother and Baby Home to help unmarried mothers during a very difficult time. The Society is entirely supported by voluntary donations, and capital is badly needed to purchase, equip, and support this home.

: THE WOMAN IN WHITE

by WILKIE COLLINS
Dramatised as a serial in twelve parts by Howard Agg 7: The Figure by the Lake
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Laura's and Marian's joy at being united again was overshadowed by the sinister presence of Count Fosco and his forbidding wife at Blackwater Park. The Count, for all his fondness for his pet canaries and white mice, his insinuating charm and fawning manner, showed in his dealings with Sir Percival over the matter of gaining Laura's signature to a hidden document that he was the real master of the house and held Sir Percival in his sway. Convinced that the document was a fraudulent one, concerned with Laura's marriage settlement, Marian wrote to Mr. Gilmore, their solicitor, only to discover that her letter had been tampered with and that its contents were known to Count Fosco.

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.
