Angel of Regent Square


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 dramatised investigation into the extraordinary career of Edward Irving , one of the most controversial clerics of the 19th century. lain Cuthbertson plays the part of the tanner's son from Annan whose mesmerically powerful preaching made him the darling of fashionable
London society. But that same charisma also brought about his downfall. His services were disrupted by strange phenomena, condemned by some as proof of hysteria, hailed by others as sign of Divine approval. Irving compounded his notoriety by maintaining that Jesus took on sinful flesh and the age of miracles was not past. He was put on trial for heresy and found guilty, but his story is not over yet, as Bernard Jackson finds out.

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.
