' Christian England '
4—' The English Bible '

While Michael is finding the places in the Bible for his father, the Rector, to read the Lessons at Evensong, he happens to notice the Translators' Preface to James I. And so he asks his father about the languages the Bible was originally written in, and how it came to be translated into English. When the Rector has told him the story of Wycliff's translation, they are visited by the shade of his predecessor of four centuries ago. This ghostly rector tells them he was an intimate friend of William Tyndale , who suffered martyrdom in 1537, and on whose translation the Authorised Version is based.

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.
