: DANGER IS OUR BUSINESS

2—' Red Cross Nurse'
Narrated by Edward Ward
Written and produced by Marjorie Ward
When Sister Jorden, M.B.E., was awarded the coveted Florence Nightingale medal the citation said: ' Sister Jorden worked with the Methodist Mission in China for eight years. She was interned for two-and-a-half years before joining the British Red Cross China Mission, and was later posted to civilian relief in Germany. In 1949 she joined the Relief Commission in Trans-Jordan; she organised and developed the work of the British Red Cross in Malaya, and in 1953 was selected for special civilian relief in Korea. She re-established the Nursing Training School of the South Korean Red Cross Hospital. She is a most outstanding nurse, shows great initiative for difficult missions, and incarnates the true Red Cross spirit by her abnegation and selfless devotion to duty.' In tonight's programme she tells her own story.

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.
