: SCARLET IN THE CITY

A series of four talks by Jocelyn Bradford
3-The Tower of London and The Royal Fusiliers
In this talk Jocelyn Bradford tells you of the age-old association that London's only regular regiment has with William the Conqueror's world-renowned Norman fortress.
The Seventh Royal Fusiliers (The
City of London Regiment) were raised there by King James II in 1685 as ' His Royal Regiment of Fuziliers '; and they have maintained their traditional link with the city ever since. They are the only regiment of the Regular Army ever to have been adopted by a City Company.

: 'THE PLAY OF DANIEL'

A gramophone record of a twelfth-century music drama
The New York Pro Musica
Directed by Noah Greenberg
Presented by Denis Stevens
PART 1
Part 2: tomorrow at 10.30
The original manuscript of the music for this play is in the British Museum and was transcribed for this performance by Fr. Rembert Weakland , O.S.B., and scored for voices and instruments by Noah Greenberg. The music has a pulse, a rhythmic vitality that lends to basically straightforward tunes an air of freshness and fascination; it shows us that the Middle Ages, far from being dark, were light enough to create what is virtually light music, even though its subject is the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den and the final judgment on his persecutors.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
