from a Northern theatre

: 'GIB'

A programme re-telling some of the history of the Rock of Gibraltar since it was captured by the British in 1704 Written and produced by Francis Dillon
In 1704 the Rock of Gibraltar was captured by a mixed British force of 1,800 men under Sir George Rooke. The Spaniards made many attempts to get it back, among them the famous four years' siege, to which a part of this programme will be devoted.
In the last two hundred years
Gibraltar has always been a very pleasant station, and to many people in this country the names of Wmdmilr Hill, Signal Station, Monkey Caves, the Alameda, the Ramps, and the Calpe Hounds will bring back memories. It is hoped that some soldiers and sailors who have served on the Rock will take part in the programme as well as one or two of the 4,000 Spanish inhabitants who have recently been evacuated.

: EARLY ENGLISH SONGS

1200-1450 sung by John Morel (baritone) Mirie it is (c. 1225) ; Jesu Cristes milde moder (c. 1290); Song of Agincourt (1415) ; I have set my heart so hye (c. 1425) ; I rede thou be (c. 1425) ; Go hert, hurt with adversite (1445) ; There is no rose of such virtu (15th-century carol)
In tonight's programme John Morel is giving some interesting examples of early English songs, taken from the original existing MSS. The songs he has chosen reflect the various progressive periods in the history of English song, from its early stages when English composers broke away from the Latin vernacular and began to set English poetry expressing everyday experience. An astonishing feature of these early songs is the expressive-ness and sincerity attained by the simple means available at this experimental period.
No modern or extraneous harmonies have been added to the songs, nor has anything been taken from them-they will be sung unaltered in the contemporary English language.

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.
