Hildegard Sister Hildegard of Bingenwasa 12th
_ century nun, a composer of music, a scientist, painter and visionary. Arraigned by her Abbot for harbouring a suspected witch and for her
"false" visions, Hildegard was eventually vindicated and founded her own women-only religious community at Bingen on the Rhine.
Patricia Routledge plays the multi-talented nun in a dramatic re-creation of Hildegard's heroic career by James Runcie and Nigel Williams. And in case anyone should wonder why the life of a medieval nun should interest a 20th-century audience: a recording of Hildegard's unaccompanied plainsong by the Gothic Voices, A Feather on the Breath of God, won Gramophone magazine's
1983 Record of the Year award.

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.
