: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho by Mrs. Francis Chichester
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledge and, should be addressed to Mrs. Francis Chichester. [address removed]
The House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho, established in 1846, has been adapted principally to meet the pressing need of women usually undeservedly homeless through illness who are waiting for hospital beds, undergoing outpatient treatment at clinics, recovering from operations, etc. A short period of really personal care restores many to independence. Funds are urgently needed to carry on the work.

: GREAT ADVOCATES

A series of portraits of outstanding. members of the English Bar by Lord Binkett
4: Sir Rufus Isaacs , K.C. 1860-1935
Called to the Bar in 1887 Rufus Isaacs took silk in 1898 and became Lord Chief Justice of England in 1913. During his twenty-six years as an advocate he displayed outstanding versatility and consummate skill in a wide variety of cases. His cross-examination of Frederick Seddon in 1912 is still cited as a model of what such a cross-examination should be: cool, suave, incisive, searching but never oppressive, and unfailingly courteous. It parallels remarkably Lord Birkett's own cross-examination of A. A. Rouse nearly twenty years later.
Viceroy of India, Foreign Secretary,
Ambassador to the U.S.A.-these glittering political appointments came his way, says Lord Birkett, because of his achievements as one of the greatest advocates of his age.

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.
