Organist and Choirmaster,
St. John's is the oldest Free Church in Connah's Quay. The present church was opened in 1884, the old one being too small to meet (the needs of the steadily growing congregation, which was composed in those days almost entirely of sea-faring and fishing folk. Now the sea-farers have largely given place to steel workers.

An Appeal on behalf of the NORTH WALES SOCIETY FOR THE BLIND
(Registered under the Blind Persons
Act, 1920) by Sir WILLIAM VINCENT ,
K.C.S.I., G.C.I.E.
The North Wales Society for the Blind has laboured for fifty-four years for the welfare of the blind of North Wales. Its present area comprises the counties of Anglesey, Caernarvon, Merioneth, Montgomery, and the Western districts of Denbigh and Flint. It has the care of over eight hundred and fifty blind persons, and it aims at improving the conditions of the blind and at assisting them in recovering from their great handicap in life.
The blind are sought out and visited in their homes, taught to read, and supplied with books in raised type, Moon and Braille. Home workers are assisted in selling their goods, and the aged and infirm are given clothing, food and coal. The blind workers work in their own homes, and all the blind are regularly visited by competent home teachers of long experience.
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.
