A programme specially arranged for the Eve of All Saints' Day by R. Ellis Roberts
Produced by Robin Whitworth with Robert Speaight
Felix Aylmer
(By permission of Rcandco)
-Leo Genn
Nan Marriott-Watson
The BBC Chorus, Section B
A Section of the London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, W. H. Reed
The music arranged by Trevor Harvey
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
(This programme was first broadcast on the Eve of All Saints', 1936)
Unlike Christmas and Holy Week, which were the subjects of the radio programmes ' Unto Us' and' Maundy Thursday', no actual event is celebrated on All Saints' Day. It is a day that emphasises (as this programme will) that saints may be unknown and poor people, who do their work for love's sake with no reward but love of the work itself.

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.
