' Smith of Demerara ' by James Potter
Cast:

Philip Cunningham
Carleton Hobbs Dorothy Black Peter Henschel Hendrv White
Alex McCrindle
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
The story of John Smith , the Demerara missionary, is a milestone in the history of civilisation. It was mainly on the strength of public indignation at his treatment by the English colonists that Wilberforce secured freedom for the slaves in the British Empire.
During his six years in Demerara,
Smith carefully observed his duty both to the slaves and to their masters, but his gentle teaching of the slaves, and his even gentler example, soon began to make thinking people of what were intended to be mere labouring machines, and at the first opportunity the planters decided to make an example of him.
It is clear from Smith's writings that had he known what would be the outcome bf his sufferings he would have considered his life well spent.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE WESTMINSTER MORAL WELFARE
ASSOCIATION by GEOFFREY GILBEY
The work of the Westminster Moral Welfare Association includes a maternity home for unmarried mothers, an emergency home where any stranded woman or girl is received at any hour of the day or night and given shelter and food, and three outside workers, who patrol the districts around Victoria Station, Charing Cross Station, and the neighbouring streets.
Many of those who come to St.
John the Baptist's Maternity Home are very young, and the time-six months-spent there is of very great benefit to them and their babies, not only physically, but morally and spiritually.
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.
