: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Royal Eye Hospital League of Friends by Derek McCulloch
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and. should be addressed to Derek McCulloch Esq.[address removed]
Every week 250 people are registered as blind in England and Wales. Some of these cases are preventable, and the Research Department of the Royal Eye Hospital is devoted to that work of prevention.
The blind are those who cannot be helped by present-day methods of treatment. New methods of treatment are needed and this implies research, which is costly. This research department-the first of its kind-is largely devoted to the study of infections of the eye, the hereditary causes of blindness, and the anomalies of vision that develop in children.

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.
