Mors et Vita
A Sacred Trilogy
Written and composed by CHARLES GOUNOD
GOUNOD was by nature something of a religious mystic, and early in his career was within a stop of entering the priesthood. Towards the end of his life he practically devoted himself to the composition of sacred works, and secured in England a following of people who felt that he had, by so doing, atoned for a lifetime spent in the secular frivolity of opera-making. Both The Redemption (1882) and Mors et Vita (1885), first produced at Birmingham Festivals, were welcomed- with open arms by British choral societies, and were cherished favourites for many years.

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.
