Concluding Sentence
(Organist Sir WALFORD Davies )
ST. GEORGE'S CHAPEL at Windsor, from which tonight's service will be relayed, owes its chief interest to its being the Chapel of the Order of the Garter. For this reason, as the Dean of Windsor puts it, it is unique among the Churches of Christendom. It is the only one which exists to enshrine a particular view of life. The founding of the Order of the Garter was Edward Ill 's great means of stamping the ideas of chivalry on national life. The highest honour attainable was not to be a title or property, but it was to be service to the country and the qualities necessary for that service. Knights of the Garter must be men who had risked their lives for their country and who stood out pre-eminently for such sacrifice. But in associating the Chapel with his Order and providing stalls in the Chapel where the Knights and Canons could sit alternately, side by side in the worship of God, Edward III insisted on the idea that true national service must rest on prayer, that all nobility of life and glory in life should grow out of submission to God, and the recognition of His Lordship. So St. George's Chapel in its worship recalls to us that the glory of life lies in service and the power of doing great service lies in prayer and worship.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
