: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE SAMARITAN FREE HOSPITAL
FOR WOMEN by ERIC COATES , F.R.A.M. The Samaritan Free Hospital for
Women was founded in 1847 and is therefore one of the oldest hospitals of London. It has always held a high place in the annals of surgery. Indeed, ' the face of surgery was changed ' by one famous member of its staff, Spencer Wells.
The Hospital has the reputation of ever advancing with the progress of science and of adapting itself to the most recent methods of treating diseases. Thus an electrical therapy department has just been initiated for the treatment of cancer. But every fresh development costs money and the committee is now asking for the help of sympathisers to endow this latest development of curative work.

: THE BOYD NEEL STRING ORCHESTRA

Leader, Louis WILLOUGHBY
Conductor, BOYD NEEL
Carl Friedrich Abel , who was born at Cothen in 1725 and died in London in 1787, was one of the most famous viola da gamba players of his day. He studied under Bach at Leipzig.
This Symphony in E flat; was originally scored for an orchestra consisting of two oboes, two horns, strings, and harpsichord. In a RADIO Times article it was pointed out that ' the ideas are not worked out with any great elaboration, and the whole work is slight by comparison with Haydn's mature symphonies. But the essence of symphonic structure is already there, and the music of all three movements has a distinction and charm which will appeal even to those who have no interest in its historical significance.'

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.
