An appeal on behalf of the GENERAL HOSPITAL, NUNEATON by Mrs. L. C. S. FITZROY-NEWDEGATE -
Nuneaton Hospital, with its 106 beds, treats nearly 4,000 patients yearly. The operations over this period number nearly 1,000. The principal grounds of the appeal this evening are the urgent necessity of an extension of the children's ward, and the provision of departments for massage and out-patients.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Mrs. L. C. S. Fitzroy-Newdegate , [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
