The Boys' Garden City is one of ' the many branches of Dr. Barnardo's
Homes. The boys, who number 700, and range in age from four to fifteen or sixteen, are divided up into, twenty separate families, each inhabiting its own small house, with its own ' mother ' at the head.
This community has its own church, schools, hospital, swimming-pool, gymnasium, and playing-fields, and these amenities are of particular value because such a large percentage of the boys sent to the Garden City are below standard physically and mentally.

The 'Overture, Scherzo, and Finale' is one of three symphonic works composed by Schumann in the year 1841. In form it is practically a symphony without a slow movement, though Schumann himself never called it one. Its title was originally intended to be ' Sinfonietta ', but when, after having been set aside for
-four years, it was revised and published it appeared under the present title of Overture, Scherzo, and Finale.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE PEEL INSTITUTE by B. A. CAMPBELL , Warden
The Peel Institute was founded forty-five years ago by Sir George Cillet , the present Commissioner for the Special Areas.
In the year 1660 the site of the institute was occupied as a wood-yard. The bakers of those days (as to some extent they do even now) employed a long wooden instrument called a ' peel ' to place their bread in the huge ovens, and the manufacture of these instruments was quite an important little industry. On this site where John Elston 's wood-yard once stood, a Friends' Meeting-House has now existed for three centuries.
The present building is the third which has been erected. For three hundred years Friends have gathered here for worship, but such meeting are no longer held in it ; now it is a centre of social, educational, and religious life. No fewer than 1,000 families use the buildings, and the work includes every form of recreational, social, and religious life, for boys and girls and men and women.
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.
