Between the Ears


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.
The last of six experimental radiophonic features.
The Night Stairs. So many feet have passed up and down the flight of stairs that runs from the monks' dormitory to the transept of Bristol Cathedral that the stone looks like the waves of the sea. Joining the monks on parallel night journeys on all kinds of staircases are an astronomer, a stairmaker, a political prisoner, a nightwatchman, an old soldier, a police night-squad, a tower-block chorus, a historian and the Cistercian monks of Caldey Abbey.
Research, interviews and radio screenplay by Graeme Fife. Original music (performed by the BBC Singers conducted by Ronald Corp ) and sound composition by Steven Faux Producers Alan Hall and Piers Plowright

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.
