: The Pilgrim's Progress

by John Bunyan
Adapted for television by H.D.C. Pepler.
The BBC Television Orchestra
Leader, Boris Pecker
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum
This programme will be repeated on Sunday, April 9
This is an entirely new dramatisation of Bunyan's masterpiece. Although cuts have been made to turn the story into dialogue form, nearly all the familiar characters remain, and the glorious language of the allegory, written more than 250 years ago, cannot fail to make this a notable television occasion.
All the incidental music has been culled from sixteenth- and seventeenth-century sources.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
