: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE WEST CHELSEA GIRLS' CLUB by LESLIE BANKS
The West Chelsea Girls' Club was founded twenty-one years ago, under the auspices of the Charity Organisation Society, for the benefit of the district which lies round the World's s End public house. There are girls of every age, from babies ot five up to factory and other workers, who are all under the supervision of the resident Club Leader. It is indeed the onlv club for children under fourteen -in a neighbourhood that has no open spaces and no playgrounds other than the street.
A room set apart as a Maids Club, for girls from every part of England, is much used. The club is entirely dependent on voluntary help.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].

: SUNDAY EVENING CONCERT

Beethoven's symphonies in C minor and F (the Pastoral) were completed so nearly at the same time (1807-8) that the latter has from the point of view of pedantic accuracy almost as much right as its twin to be known as ' the Fifth '.
It is significant that each is an enlargement of the formal structure of what had hitherto been known as ' symphony ' and that each achieves far more precision of emotional expression than Beethoven (and most of his predecessors) had hitherto attempted in instrumental music.
There had been programme symphonies before—Dittersdorf's, for instance. But they were prose ; the ' Pasteral ' is poetry.

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.
