GOOD CAUSE
An Appeal on behalf of THE ADA LEIGH HOMES AND HOSTELS
IN PARIS
By Lady Simon, D.B.E.
For over sixty years the Ada Leigh Homes and Hostels in Paris have been )pen for the welfare of young women and girls of the British Empire who for )ne reason or another find themselves itranded.
Many come to Paris necessitous and friendless in the hope of securing the job they have failed to land at home. Many others go out there to take up sosts with British firms who, later perhaps, through depression in trade, are obliged to dismiss them. Others find the cost of living even in the cheapest hotels beyond their means, and can only keep their jobs by living in these hostels. Again, they are often unable to meet even the small charges made, through being in and out of work.
These hostels cannot be self-supporting. The very existence of this, one of the largest British Philanthropic Associations of its kind on the Continent, depends on contributions.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

: LESLIE JEFFRIES and THE GRAND HOTEL, EASTBOURNE, ORCHESTRA

MAVIS BENNETT-LEVIN
(soprano)
Relayed from
The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne At the pianoforte, SYDNEY FFOULKES
Tonight listeners are to hear another concert by the ever popular Leslie Jeffries and the Grand Hotel Orchestra. And, it being St. Patrick's Day, the programme will have its flavour of Irish music.
Dvorak's ' Humoresque', arranged by Kreisler, is probably the only arrangement for the violin in the original key of G flat in which it was written, and when Leslie Jeffries plays it tonight, it will be with happy memories of its arranger.
Kreisler himself was playing at the Winter Gardens a few weeks ago, and stayed at the Grand Hotel. Jeffries had never met him, and was touched by the gesture of the great violinist in inviting him to join him at supper. Kreisler showed the greatest interest in the orchestra and in the welfare of British musicians generally. In May he is to tour South America for the first time, and Jeffries, who conducted his own orchestra in the Argentine as a young man, was able to interest him with reminiscences of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
Of the other solos chosen for tonight ' Hejre-Kati', by Hubay, considered to be one of the most popular Hungarian violin solos, is being played by request, and Jeffries is to give a third selection from ' Musical Comedy Gems,' which, arranged and recorded by him for the gramophone, has won him such great popularity.

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.
