' Pioneers for the Kingdom '
26-William Booth by Alec MacDonald
. Cast

Grenville Eves
Wallace Douglas
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
' What do you think of the Salvation Army ? ' a certain dignified minister of religion was once asked. 'I don't like it at all ', was his answer—' but to tell you the truth, I believe God Almighty does.'
' General ' William Booth began life as a pawnbroker's assistant in Nottingham about a hundred years ago. He died in 1912, over eighty years of age, completely blind, and honoured all over the world. But it was the poor and outcast, whose souls he had devoted his life to save, who had most reason to be grateful to William Booth. For it was he who began the great campaign for social reform that the Salvation Army started during the eighteen-nineties and is still fighting today.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE EAST LONDON WORKERS AMONG
THE POOR by the Rt. Hon. GEORGE LANSBURY ,
M.P.
The Rt. Hon. George Lansbury will plead for a Society that for over
I'fty years has carried on its work in Shoreditch and the surrounding districts, giving a helping hand to those who have fallen on bad times, helping in illness with nourishments, convalescent homes, etc., and granting weekly sums to those finding life hard with the old-age pension their sole income. The Society also grants loans for obtaining surgical appliances, dentures, and spectacles, assists small traders to purchase stock, and befriends the needy in innumerable other ways.
The success attained by the Society is attributed to the personal contacts established by the staff of two in their dealings with the applicants. Here is found real kindliness and forbearance, gentleness and delicacy of feeling in the investigation of the often difficult and distressing cases.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Rt. Hon. George Lansbury, M.P., [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.
