Noah Gives Thanks


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.
A television play by Eric Crozier.
[Starring] Herbert Lomas
The action of the play takes place In and around the Memorial Chapel at Crockitt, a small Hampshire village.

Noah is a gentle man whose three score years and ten have been spent in the open air. He has been a gardener, and glad of it: "It's been a good, rich life. There's money to be made in town, but a sight less peace of mind to its getting and spending." These his declining years are being spent in one of the two almshouses which flank the chapel, built as a war memorial, twenty-five years ago. The anniversary of its opening is to be marked by a visit from the Bishop and on Noah's birthday. This happy coincidence is, he thinks, worthy of a gesture as magnificent as he can possibly make it. This touching play tells the story of Noah's offering and of the way in which it is received.

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.
