: David Munrow

1942-1976
'David Munrow did not just emerge into the field of medieval and renaissance music - he exploded into it .. He established a standard that can now never be ignored, and the stimulating shockwaves from his explosion will carry far into the future.'
(SIR ANTHONY LEWIS )
When he died in 1976. David Munrow was only 33 years old, yet within the span of a decade he had widened the musical horizons of millions by his concerts, records, writings and broadcasts. Whether directing the Early Music Consort of London or introducing Radio 3's Pied Piper he radiated an intense enthusiasm which could leave his colleagues just as often exhausted as exhilarated.
Michael Oliver presents this award-winning portrait of a dynamic and sometimes controversial personality, with impressions and assessments from PROFESSOR WILLIS GRANT, BILL ODDIE , A. G. ELLIOTT-SMITH (former Principal of Markham College, Lima, Peru), MEREDITH DEWEY (former Dean of Pembroke College, Cambridge), CHRISTOPHER HOGWOOD , GUY WOOL-FENDEN, JAMES BOWMAN , JASPER PARROTT , JOHN WILLAN and PROFESSOR ROBERT DONINGTON.

: The Reith Lectures

Christianity and the World Order
The Rev Dr Edward Norman , Dean of Peterhouse. Cambridge. begins his series of six talks. 1: The Political Christ Dr Norman takes issue with those who are reinterpreting Christianity as a scheme of social and political action. He argues that in their death agonies the western Churches are distributing the causes of their sickness - the politicisation of religion - to their healthy offspring in the developing world. The politicisation of Christianity in the western world takes the form of identifying Christian teachings with the moral outlook and political ideas of liberalism. Are there distinctly Christian reasons for regarding its principles as more compatible with the teachings of Christ than other and rival political outlooks?

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
