FKW parish churches can compare in size and architectural beauty with that of St. Mary
Magdalene, Taunton. The tower, which is 163 feet high, is claimed tb be the second tallest of any parish church in the country. It contains a magnificent peal of twelve bells and a carillon with a repertoire of twenty-one tunes, most of them being of a secular character. The church is sometimes spoken of as the Cathedra! of West Somerset, and indeed in size and structure it more resembles a small cathedral than a parish church. The services are of a cathedral character, and the pulpit is constantly occupied by clergy from surrounding parishes and even further afield. Thomas Cranmer , the renowned Archbishop of Canterbury, was Archdeacon of Taunton from 1522 to 1533.

THE Home is a branch of the Seamen and Boatmen's Friend' Society. For nearly sixty years it has been working in Bristol for the welfare of the men who spend their lives on the sea and the waterside. It is interdenominational in character, and seeks to give a helping hand to seamen of all nations. Adjoining the Home is a large hall which is the centre of active mission work. Tho services are attended by the families of seamen and boatmen living in the neighbourhood, and recently the whole crew of a ship was present. Services are also held aboard ship.

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.
