: Housekeeping in Adventure

' Jerusalem after the War '
Mrs. STACY WADDY
Mrs. Waddy was in Australia at the end of the War ; her husband was a chaplain with General Allenby's force in Palestine. Somebody was needed at once to help open schools and a college. Her husband wired her to come. The chance of seeing the Holy Land seemed too good to be true.
Today Mrs. Waddy is to relate some of her experiences. A stone house outside Jerusalem that took three months to clean. Her children put to bed under mosquito nets. Camels appearing one morning in the yard with her lost luggage. Housekeeping under difficulties. Little milk, and that very poor. No butter. Very few eggs. Cooking without fat until she imported it in tins from England. She will tell of some of her expedients-cocoa and sugar on bread instead of butter ; but in spite of it all, her children throve, and she came to look on her life in Jerusalem as a ' great adventure and a great joy '.

British HistorY-3
'The Franciscans come to England '
RHODA POWER
St. Francis of Assisi was bom in the late twelfth century. His piety was not very evident in his youth. He was quite a wild young man, in fact. Later, however, he devoted himself to prayer and service to the poor, and after a time he went on a pilgrimage to Rome. From then on, his life was an amazing example of saintliness. He loved all — his fellow creatures, birds, animals, even inanimate objects. He died in 1226. This afternoon Rhoda Power will tell listeners of the followers of St. Francis who came to England in 1224. 2.25 Interlude.

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.
