York - Rebirth of a Minster

Synopsis

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.
Next Friday, 4 November, HM The Queen attends a service of dedication for the restored south transept roof of York Minster, destroyed by fire four years ago.
Margaret Phillips, personal assistant to the Chapter Clerk at York, tells the story of the fire and reveals the human side of the tragedy. It's the tale not only of the engineers who scoured the land for English oak trees and the craftsmen who carved and gilded them, but also of the primate and the puncture, of the commonsense of the deanery cat and of the burser who returned from holiday to a telephone call at 2.30am which simply said 'Welcome home, Ken, the Minster's on fire'.

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.
