: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE FAIRFIELD HOUSE OPEN-AIR RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL, BROADSTAIRS
(Save the Children Fund) by ' MR. WALKER'
Nearly three thousand elementaryschoolgirls from some of the poorest homes in southern England and Wales have benefited by residence at Fairfield House Open-Air School, Broadstain. Founded and maintained by the ' Save the Children Fund ', Fairfield exists to save from the risk of serious illness and lifelong debility children who are the victims of privation because of parental poverty.
1 Medical officers testify to the miracles which are wrought in bringing these little mothers of the future up to normal standard of health, and in endowing them with a physique which will make a difference to their children after them. The work is essentially of a voluntary character, and can only be carried on with the support of the general public.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Syd Walker , Esq., [address removed]

: 'ADMIRABLE CRICHTON,

1560 - 1582 '

A section of the BBC Scottish
Orchestra
Conducted by Kemlo Stephen
Production by John Gough
This dramatic feature programme has nothing to do with J. M. Barrie 's butler Crichton whose capabilities earned him the borrowed title of ' admirable '. This is the real prototype-a man whose exploits have never been excelled in the wildest fiction, and who was certainly the most accomplished Scot who ever lived.
Crichton went from St. Andrews to Paris as a beardless boy, and challenged all the most learned scholars of the day to confound him in any aspect of human knowledge. While the pundits prepared diligently by poring over ancient tomes, Crichton was leading a wild life in the taverns of Paris. Yet on the day of the contest he matched his learning against that of every scholar and defeated them all. His progress thereafter was a continuous triumph, and though he was killed when only twenty-two, he proved that there was no human art except painting and sculpture in which he did not surpass everyone else.

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.

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.
