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.
Mirie it is
Cuckoo Song
Lydgate : Vox Ultima Crucis Carol: I sing of a maiden Adam lay i-bounden
About 20 lines of Piers Plowman
Thirty lines of Chaucer's Prologue to ' Canterbury Tales'
Chaucer: The love unfeigned;
Lament for Chaucer
THE series of readings from the Old Testament, in which so many of the finest passages from the greatest prose book in the English language have been recited week by week, has now closed.
It will be resumed in the autumn, and in the meantime its place will be taken on Sunday afternoons by a series of readings from those great works that can most truly be called the foundations of English poetry. The series will start today with the early period, including William Langland , the author of ' Piers Plowman,' and Geoffrey Chaucer , of the immortal ' Canterbury Tales.'

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.
