Address by the Rt. Rev. The Bishop of Blackburn
Blessing
It was to Dr. Herbert that Gracie Fields paid such a remarkable tribute when she broadcast on July 30 after her long and serious illness. That night, she told listeners how, at the critical moment when her life seemed to be slipping from her, the Bishop of Blackburn visited her in the nursing home and prayed at her bedside. From that moment onwards, she gathered strength.
Dr. Herbert, well known in the North of England, particularly in Lancashire, became Bishop of Blackburn in 1926. He has always been prominently associated with the Blackpool Sands Mission.

Eleanora Iredale
The first speaker in this important series, which is discussed in Both
Sides of .the Microphone', will cover the period of the first Great War (1914-1918). Eleanora Iredale helped to organise the European Student Relief fund, which enabled universities and students in the victorious countries to give practical help to universities and students in Central Europe, where everything was on a starvation level.
Lately, as Secretary to the Archbishop of York's Committee on Unemployment, she has organised an enquiry into unemployment and edited the report ' Men without Work', which is recognised as a unique contribution to the subject. She is one of the secretaries to the newly formed Council on the Christian Faith and Common Life, presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

2—' The Monk and his Home' by Alec MacDonald
On this occasion Michael, and not his father, the Rector, has the exciting adventure. Michael is shown round a fourteenth-century monastery by Brother John, a kindly monk. Monasteries, at this time, were the home of education and culture. Michael finds the contrast between ' school' as it then was, and as he knows it, startling.

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.
