J. C. Lee-Gordon , a resident of Coventry for thirty-nine years and an ex-mayor, introduces some of his fellow citizens during this dramatised story of his town
Written and produced by Alan Burgess
There are few better examples of the rise of a tiny medieval town to a prosperous modern city than Coventry. For nearly a thousand years it has stood like a healthy blood vessel in the heart of F.ngland. It was the first provincial city to be blitzed: today it is well advanced in its rebuilding schemes.

Conductor, James Denny
From Birmingham Cathedral
Luther's well-known hymn. which appears in our hymn books as ' A Stronghold Sure,' was the musical focal point in the principal Service of the Reformation Festival of the Lutheran Church. In Bach's day this festival fell on October 31. Though originally Bach had incorporated only part of this hymn into a cantata (for the third Sunday in Lent), in 1730 he set the remainder of the verses, so making the work suitable for performance at the annual celebrations of the Reformation.

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.
