: Missionary Talk 'INDIA'S WOMEN DOCTORS'

Dame Edith Brown , D.B.E., M.D., Principal of the Women's Christian Medical College, Ludhiana, Punjab
Dame Edith Brown is Principal of the Women's Christian Medical College at Ludhiana in the Punjab, an institution which she herself founded forty-four years ago for the training of Indian Christian girls as doctors and nurses.
Her early work in India as a young medical missionary was sorely hampered for lack of skilled assistants, and a medical school for women seemed to her the only remedy. It opened, in face of many difficulties, in 1894, with four students. Today there are 250 resident students, while during the forty-four years hundreds of doctors, nurses, dispensers, and midwives have passed out of the college to bless tens of thousands of India's suffering womanhood.
It is about the work of these graduates, scattered all over India, that Dame Edith will speak.

: The Week's Good Cause

ST. MARTIN'S SUMMER APPEAL by the Rev. PAT MCCORMICK , D.S.O.
The Holiday Fund was started many years ago by Canon Sheppard' Dick ' Sheppard-then Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. By means of it both he and his successor, the Rev. Pat McCormick , have been able to help many poor people to have a good holiday, and especially those who have seen better days and to whom a small gift of money makes all the difference. As all work involved is done by voluntary helpers there are no overhead expenses, the only charge upon the funds being some of the cost of postage and printing. It is an immense boon to the recipients who must be well recommended if unknown to Mr. McCormick.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

From ' Gulliver's Travels ' by Jonathan Swift. The whole embellished with music composed by Robert Chignell , who will conduct the orchestra and a section of the BBC
Chorus with Stuart Robertson as Gulliver
Supported by : Olive Groves, Warren Jenkins , Peter Henschel , Wilfred Fletcher , Andrew Churchman , Hubert Langley , Stephen Jack , Anthony Leon , Joan French , Neville Gates ,
Lilian Warde , Beatrice Gilbert
(Fade up music and sounds of approaching crowd)
Gulliver: Behold! What is this concourse of little people ? They are dragging something. (He laughs) Upon my soul! It is my hat!
(The croud, dragging the great hat, advance singing, accompanied by Handelian light music)
We have found a great black substance Lying on the ground.
Very oddly shaped is the object we have found.
Larger than His Majesty's bed-chamber.
The edge is flat, the centre's round. We have stamped upon it! We have stamped upon it! And it is hollow!
And we humbly conceive
That the thing which we have found Must be something that the great
Man Mountain
Left lying on the ground!

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.
