: FOR THE CHILDREN

' The Pilgrim's Progress ' by John Bunyan
Other parts played by Stephen Jack , Charles Mason
Adapted and produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
In the days when few story books might be opened on Sundays, ' The Pilgrim's Progress ' was the one great exception. The strictest parents could not but approve the vigorous and racy story of the heroic Christian. Bunyan's theology may not have interested children, but his story thrilled them. They probably did not picture Bunyan as ' a tinker out of Bedford, a vagrant oft in quod', nor could they have then known that he probably wrote the book in the old town gaol on Bedford Bridge during his second term of imprisonment (he had already served twelve years) in the year 1676.
It is doubtful whether any other book originally written in English, but since translated into hundreds of languages, has achieved the eminence of this working companion to the Bible in millions of homes.
The text, though necessarily greatly shortened, has been carefully followed, with original commentary to elucidate difficult passages and make the sequence and argument clear to young listeners.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE CHILDREN'S PLAY CENTRES
FUND by Mrs. G. M. TREVELYAN , C.H.,
Chairman
The Children's Play Centres Fund for London, founded by the late Mrs. Humphry Ward , is now one of the largest organisations catering for the children's happiness and safety out of school hours. The committee are making a ' Fortieth Anniversary Appeal' for £5,000 to enable them to open more centres, both in the oldest and poorest districts and in the new estates, where there are now thousands of children who have little or nothing to do in the evening hours. The London County Council lend their cheerful buildings and the committee supply a trained staff and an attractive equipment of toys, games, cricket sets, footballs, etc. Some 15,000 children are kept happily occupied and out of danger every evening in winter, and about 20,000 in the summer holidays. But London needs more centres!
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.
