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.

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.'
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.
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.
