: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE QUEEN ALEXANDRA HOSPITAL HOME
AND ROYAL Savoy ASSOCIATION
By the Rev. W. H. ELLIOTT
The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home fulfils a dual purpose : it gives a really happy, permanent home to men who have been under the same care, ever since the day they were brought back to England wounded ; and it also provides a seaside holiday home under the scheme started by the Duke of Richmond and Gordon.
It is the only hospital to take seriously disabled ex-Service men-living in their own homes-for holidays, to give them the nursing attention that is essential, and it is specially adapted for men in hand-propelled tricycle chairs. They come from all parts of the country, all expenses being paid. These holidays not only benefit the men, but give the wives respite from nursing their disabled husbands.
Contributions are urgently needed to carry on this good work. There is no Endowment Fund and the only assured income is a grant from the Ministry of Pensions for some of the permanent patients. With additional funds no refusals would have to be sent to the many very deserving applications for holidays.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and shouldbe addressed to [address removed]

No. 20 in C minor, Largo No. 21 in B flat, Cantabile
No. 22 in G minor, Molto agitato No. 23 in F, Moderato
No. 24 in D, Allegro appassionato
As a virtuoso, Smeterlin's tastes are catholic. Naturally, being a Pole, he inclines to Chopin, and his Chopin playing is, as listeners know, extraordinarily beautiful. But his sympathies are not confined to the romantic, 01 even to the classical, schools. He is an ardent modernist and plays the music of his own generation with the understanding and appreciation of a contemporary. It is significant that he is fluent in several languages, for his musical tastes are as fluent in as many idioms.

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.
