The Week's Good Cause
An appeal on behalf of THE GRITH FYRD CAMPS by MEGAN LLOYD
GEORGE, M.P.
CRITH FYRD CAMPS are small pioneer communities of young unemployed men. The cost of maintenance is met by their pooling their Benefit or Transitional Payment, the Committee of Management supplying sites, essential tools, materials, livestock, etc. The Camps give full scope for initiative, self-discipline, and self-development. Membership of each is purposely limited to fifty. The Camps are continually in session, a man joining for eighteen months unless in the interval he obtains a job. The capital cost is only £7 per place (£350 per camp) provided land is secured at a nominal rental.
Since the inception of the Camps in March, 1932, one hundred and eight men have entered the movement. Of these forty-seven men are still in one or other of the Camps. Those who have left the scheme have done so for the most part because they were offered, or wished to look for, work. The Committee has kept in touch with these men and finds that of the thirty-five who obtained work, thirty are still in employment. They have, as a rule, gone back to their former type of work, but about a third discovered new talents while in camp and have taken up work of an entirely different character.
The appeal will be in respect of the organisation and equipment of further camps similar to those already established at Fordingbridge (Hampshire), on the edge of the New Forest, and at Alderwasley (Derbyshire) at the southern end of the Pennines.

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.
