: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Mental After Care Association by Sir Michael Redgrave , C.B.E.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Sir Michael Redgrave. C.B.E,The Mental After Care Association. [address removed]
Eighty years ago the Mental After Care Association pioneered the work which is now so widely discussed-that of providing friendly Homes in which early psychiatric cases and those discharged from Mental Hospitals can be rehabilitated, and those without friends be given permanent care or recuperative holidays. More than 100,000 have been helped, but more Homes are needed. Although Local Authorities pay maintenance fees, the money to provide Homes has to be found from voluntary sources.

: OVER THE RIVER

by JOHN GALSWORTHY
Dramatised as a serial in ten parts by Muriel Levy with Rachel Gurney and Carleton Hobbs
Tony Croom invites Clare to visit Jack Muskham 's stables where he now works. On the way home the lights on his car fail, and, rather than risk an accident, Clare suggests they spend the night in the car. Some time later she receives notice that her husband Gerald has started divorce proceedings against her, naming Tony Croom as co-respondent, and claiming substantial damages.
Dinny is distraught for her sister, convinced of Clare's innocence and knowing Tony could never pay the damages if he and Clare lost the case.

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.
