: 'ARTHUR STANTON OF ST. ALBAN'S, HOLBORN'

(born a hundred years ago)
Sidney Dark
There are still thousands of Londoners who recall Arthur Stanton of St. Alban's, Holborn, who was bom a hundred years ago, and who, of his own choice, remained a curate for half a century. The parish in his early days contained slums as bad as any in London ; and to its people Stanton gave his life, his love, and his money. There was perhaps never a greater mission preacher, and his biting sermons packed St. Alban's with congregations from every walk of life.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE COUNCIL FOR THE PRESERVATION
OF RURAL ENGLAND by HOWARD MARSHALL
The Council for the Preservation of Rural England has, for the last thirteen years, been pre-eminently concerned with the protection of the beauties of the countryside. With the King as patron, it is composed of 44 constituent bodies, 151 affiliated societies, and 38 county branches, and an associate membership. It is an entirely voluntary society of practical men and women. From the prevention of litter to the creation of national parks, from the promotion. of good building to the prevention of unsightly advertisement hoardings, there is no matter pertaining to the beauty of the countryside, however great or small, over which the C.P.R.E. does not take action.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Howard Marshall , Esq., [address removed]

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.
