The last of five programmes written and presented by Michael Wood The People
Midsummer's Night - Cornish people gather on Land's End to light a beacon and celebrate ancient Celtic tradition. They live in England but are they
English? Michael Wood explores the English nation from its invention to the present and asks, 'Who are the English?' There are clues in London's East End streets and at Henley's Regatta, in our names and even in our bones. He stumbles into the mosque which has been a church and a synagogue. We meet families from the West Indies, whose home was in Africa but whose pedigree is as English as anyone's. Now Michael resolves issues he has raised in the series and asks a final question: 'Who will the English be when
Domesday is 1000 years old'? Assistant producers

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.
