A TRIBUTE TO
HYMNS ANCIENT AND MODERN
In 1858 two clergymen travelling on the Great Western Railway conceived the idea of publishing a comprehensive book of hymns for use in Church of England services; a book that would replace many of the small hymnals locally compiled. The idea took shape, and one hundred years ago Hymns Ancient and Modern was first published.

Waiting anxiously for a reply to her letter to Mr. Gilmore, Marian Halcombe is mystified by Sir Percival's hurried departure one morning from Blackwater Park for an unknown destination. Later, while she and Laura strolled at dusk by the lake, they were followed by a cloaked figure. The next day the figure appeared again and revealed herself to Laura as Anne Catherick, and spoke of a secret that would bring about Sir Percival's ruin. In her attempt to discover the secret, Laura incurred the wrath of Sir Percival, who locked her in her room.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
