Family Carols
For Choir and Audience
Selections from this year's programme in the Royal Albert Hall. The Bach Choir soloist Michael Leighton Jones with the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble conductor Sir David Willcocks organist RICHARD POPPLEWELL percussion
Introduced by Geoffrey Wheeler
Each Christmas for over 30 years the Bach Choir has sung a mixture of traditional carols and new ones, with a packed family audience in the Royal Albert Hall.
This year the Choir held a carol competition and the three young winners receive their prizes and hear their carols sung by the Choir.
After the interval, DAVID WILLCOCKS invites all the children in the audience to join him on the stage for carols and a quiz - it's a musical Christmas party for children.
Presented for television by RAYMOND SHORT

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.
