: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of The Hostels for Crippled and Invalid Women Workers by Zoë Lady Hart Dyke
Contributions [text removed]will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Zoë Lady Hart Dyke [address removed]Founded in 1912, the Hostels offer to physically disabled girls and women a home, together with a training and employment followed by sheltered retirement. A high degree of independence is achieved. When fully trained the women produce exquisite lingerie, children's dresses, and embroideries of the highest quality. In order to provide the necessary skilled attention and the high standards of warmth and comfort required, running costs are inevitably high.

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.
