The Record of the British Expeditionary Force from Mons to Ypres, between August and November, 1914
A programme composed in memory of a great feat of arms by Beatrix Brice
(Author of the verses to the First Seven Divisions, 0 little mighty
Force that stood for England)
Produced by Felix Felton and Val Gielgud
This programme is based upon the Official History of the War by Brigadier-General J. E. Edmonds , who has seen and approved it ; on the memoirs of Lord French and General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien ; and on letters and notes sent to the authoress personally by officers who were serving at the time. The programme thus gives a historically accurate and intimate account of the first few months of the war, the true facts of which are still generally little known.

: The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of The London Federation of Boys' Clubs by Geoffrey Gilbey
The cause of boys' clubs is one that is nowadays very prominent in the public eye, and the wonderful way in which these clubs attract the generation of today has been responsible for the growth of one of the great movements of this century. In these clubs a boy can get everything that is dear to his heart-sports. games, recreations, hobbies, and comradeship - besides culture, advice, and guidance.
The London Federation of Boys' Clubs, which has been doing splendid work for the youth of London for fifty years, is the Headquarters of almost every boys' club in London, and their guide, philosopher, and friend. Although there are two hundred and fifty clubs affiliated to it, there are still districts in London where boys' clubs are badly needed. It is the Federation's great hope that help will be given to enable it to celebrate its Golden Jubilee by starting fresh clubs in these districts ; and in giving a helping hand to existing ones, where a small gift may mean all the difference between salvation or extinction.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
