Readings from the works of great preachers from 1500 to the present day
11-Henry Parry Liddon 's sermon, ' Five Minutes after Death.' preached at St. Paul's Cathedral on December 14, 1879
Read by Pierre Lefevre
In the summer of 1876 Dr. E. W. Benson. the future Primate, wrote:
' I have been hearing Liddon at St. Paul's — very beautiful and very eloquent, yet the art part of it does not seem so unattainable. But he unites many charms His beautiful look and penetrating voice are powerful over one, and then his reasoning Is very persuasive. He does not make leaps. and dismiss one with allusions, or assume that one knows anything. He tells it all from the beginning to end. and seems to assume nothing. But all his physical and intellectual structure Is quite swallowed up in spiritual earnestness, and he is different to other preachers, in that one feels this preaching in itself is a self-sacrifice to him—not a vanity or a gain. I do not mean that one feels others' preaching to be these, but with him one is conscious that it is the opposite '

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.
