Archaeology in Scotland
J. S. Richardson ,
Inspector of Ancient Monuments gives the first in a new series of fortnightly talks. Subsequent talks will be contributed by Scottish archajlogists working either at home or abroad. While the contributors are authorities in their own field, the talks will appeal to those who have little or no special knowledge but who wish to see how history comes alive again in the relics of distant civilisations.

An appeal on behalf of THE QUEEN'S INSTITUTE OF
DISTRICT NURSING by Her Grace HILDA , Duchess of RICHMOND AND GORDON, C.B.E.
The Queen's Institute of District Nursing was founded in 1887, when Queen Victoria expressed her desire that Y70,000 of the offering made by the women of Great Britain and Ireland at her Jubilee should be devoted to the training and provision of nurses for the sick poor in their own homes.
The work was carried on under the title of ' Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for Nurses' until 1928, when a change was made in order to give a more exact description of the work undertaken by the Institute.
The title of 'Queen's Institute of District Nursing' was then incorporated by Royal Charter. A superintendent and three nurses in a small flat in Edinburgh were the commencement of the work in Scotland.
Since then the service has steadily increased, and there are now 547 Affiliated District Nursing Associations in Scotland, employing about a thousand nurses.
The objects of the Institute are to provide a special course of training in district nursing to State registered nurses, to maintain a supply of Queen's Nurses to meet the needs of the affiliated associations throughout Scotland, and to encourage the formation of associations in areas hitherto unnursed, so that a highly skilled nursing service may be within the reach of every home in the land.

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.
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.
