Blessing
In 1665 when the Great Plague was spreading from London to the countryside, it reached the little village of Eyam in Derbyshire. The inhabitants agreed to stay in their village lest they should carry the infection to other districts. The story illustrates Christ's commandment: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself (St. Matthew 22, v. 39).

Glorious and powerful God,
We understand thy dwelling is on high
Above the starry sky.
Thou dwell'st not in stone temples made with hand;
But in the flesh hearts of the sons of men
To dwell is thy delight.
Near hand. though out of sight.
We give of thine own hand. Thy acceptation
Is very life and blood, To all actions good.
Whenever here or hence our supplication,
From pure and with unfeigned hearts.
To thee ascends,
Be present with thy grace, Shew us thy loving face.
Oh, down on us full showers of mercy send.
Let thy love's burning beams Dry up all our sin's streams.
Arise, 0 Lord, and come into thy rest,
Both now and evermore thy name be blest.
Founder and foundation Of endless* habitation.

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.
