'Told by an Angel'-7
The Second Book of Samuel
This afternoon the Angel will take up the history of David from the chapter following David's great lament over Saul and Jonathan. His young friends, Mark and Prudence, will follow David's reign from the death of Abner to David's own death and the accession and anointing of Solomon. The Angel should have no difficulty in conjuring up in the imagination of his two charges the most famous of all the Old Testament Kings.

An appeal on behalf of THE LONDON CHILD GUIDANCE
The London Child Guidance Clinic was founded in 1929 through the generosity of the Commonwealth Fund of America, and from its inception has been designed to fulfil two services, viz. the treatment of children and the training of students in all branches of Child Guidance.
Child Guidance is the careful investigation of those causes which disturb the normal mental stability in children, and the application of suitable methods to correct them. Children are received from parents, doctors, hospitals, schools, and magistrates. Treatment, which includes a detailed consideration of the history of each case, is very simple-talks, play (either individual or in groups), discussions, games.
The clinic also trains students who are prepared to staff similar clinics.
The demands for treatment and training have so increased that additional funds are most urgenly needed if the clinic is to fulfil its duties.
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.

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.
