: A MILLION HOMELESS AND HUNGRY

During the past week sixteen countries in Europe, including Britain, have been raising funds to help a million men, women, and children made homeless by recent political changes in Asia and Africa
This programme tells what has been happening in the campaign and the work now in progress all over the world which it is to help. Starvation has to be prevented. health restored, and safeguarded, and then, the biggest task of all, the refugees have to be provided with new homes and means of a permanent livelihood —all this for a million people.

: GROWING UP IN RUSSIA

Memories of Russian childhood recalled by PETR VLADIMIROVICH TSAREV and TATYANA KUZMICHEVA
PROFESSOR TSAREV, who heads the English department at Moscow University, was born in a Russian village in 1921. His parents were peasants who worked on a collective farm, and he was educated first at the village school, later in a nearby town.
MRS. KUZMICHEVA who teaches English at Leningrad University, was born in Moscow in 1928. Her parents were both professional people - father, an engineer; mother, a teacher-and until the outbreak of war she lived in reasonable comfort.
On a recent visit to London they recorded this conversation with LESLIE SMITH , in which they talk about their lives, both at home and at school.

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.
