An old woman looks back
More memories of a Ferm Deemie
Of this series Edith Anne Robert son writes: ' By a kitchen fireside I heard the beginnings of these old tales and gathered them together as best I could, in the hope that they might hold some echoes of a fast fading dialect and a fast fading condition of life.'
The original teller of the stories is an old lady who entered farm service at eleven years of age, and has preserved in her retentive mind a vivid gallery of pictures of the people and scenes of long ago. The general title of the series is taken from a phrase that occurred in the very first story of all.
Mrs. Robertson, who is the wife
. of Professor J. A. Robertson of Aberdeen, is already well known as the authoress of a life of St. Francis Xavier and of several volumes of poetry.
A ' Ferm Deemie ' is a serving girl (literally ' little dame ') of a farm. The roughness of the work that she had to do in all weathers would appal some girls of today, yet life had its joys as well as its sorrows, and it certainly did not fail to develop the character as well as the muscles.

An appeal on behalf of THE WESTERN INFIRMARY OF
The Western Infirmary of Glasgow treats not only thousands of patients from Glasgow and district, but affords ready and willing aid to patients from all parts of Scotland, including the Highlands and Islands.
Last year 13,465 indoor and 52,447 outdoor patients were treated. The expenditure on treatment was £131,931 and exceeded the total income by £22,510.
Naturally, those concerned are looking anxiously at the position, not only because of the deficit, but because funds are urgently required to meet heavy capital expenditure.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [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.
