A programme specially devised for
Michaelmas by R. Ellis Roberts
With music specially written by Benjamin Britten
Production by Robin Whitworth with Robert Speaight
Felix Aylmer
Leo Genn
Singers Sophie Wyss
Peter Pears
The BBC Chorus (Section B)
The BBC Orchestra (Section C)
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
From the Scriptures, from old authors, from poets of yesterday and today have been chosen a few of the passages in which they profess that behind the universe are Powers unseen, whose work is the adoration of God, and, at His bidding, the service of Man. To English people, their names, old in tradition, are known mainly from the Bible and from John Milton 's ' Paradise Lost '. This is the Festival of Archangels and Angels-from whom Man has learnt the song of Adoration.

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.
