Pilgrim's Way


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
IN THESE difficult and complex modem days Man's moods are perhaps more subtle and varied than they have ever been before; and yet, fundamentally, he remains the same being as in the old Morality play Everyman, in which allegorical portrait of themselves our mediaeval forebears were shown their own likeness-a figure emotionally reacting to temptations and so forth, that were depicted as symbolical beings around Everyman on the stage.
In this new series of broadcasts, which begins tonight and will be continued each second Sunday of the month throughout the year, listeners are to be shown, in much the same way, an allegorical reflection of themselves under the guise and title of the Pilgrim journeying through life. Prose and poetry and music will be selected to delineate various moods and phases; the first broadcast-tonight-being the mood of Hope ; the second, of Faith; the third, of Joy.


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.
