: FOR THE CHILDREN

' St. Nicholas—
The Real Santa Claus' by Alec Macdonald
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
Who was Santa Claus ? In this broadcast we shall trace him back to his origin in St. Nicholas, the fourth-century Bishop of Myra, in Asia Minor, who, because of his generosity, becarhe the patron saint of schoolboys. During the Middle Ages the feast of St. Nicholas-December 6-was celebrated by choristers and novices in monasteries with the riotous ceremonies of the Boy Bishop.
Banished from England after the Reformation, he was revived in comparatively recent times, but transformed into the bearded Father Christmas who visits little children on Christmas Eve and brings them presents.

Adaptation and Production by Francis Dillon
From Kingston Parish Hall, Dorset
Place: Shepherd Fennel's cottage stood lonely and exposed on the downs, four or five miles from Casterbridge. Time: a wild March night one hundred years ago. 'The level rainstorm smote walls, slopes, and hedges like the clothyard shafts of Senlac and Crecy..... The gable-end of the cottage was stained with wet, and the eavesdroppings flapped against the wall. Yet never was commiseration for the shepherd more misplaced. For that cheerful rustic was entertaining a large party in glorification of the christening of his second girl.'
That is the striking setting in which Hardy placed this bizarre tale of the three strangers who interrupted Shepherd Fennel's party.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of ST. FRANCIS' HOUSE SETTLEMENT,
WOOLWICH, by the Rt. Rev. the Bishop of WOOLWICH
St. Francis' House Settlement was started by the late Bishop Hough in 1918 to provide a centre for women who would be ready to work in the poorest parts of Woolwich. The Settlement is founded on Franciscan ideals-simplicity, fellowship, discipline, and joy-and girls and women who desire to serve their fellow-men are trained for church and social work.
The Settlement has a hostel for children, and another for homeless and stranded boys between the ages of fourteen and twenty-one. About
300 women, children, men, and boys from South London have a week's holiday at St. Francis-by-the-Sea, the Settlement's holiday home.

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.
