Robert Cundy reports from
SURTSEY on The Fire Giant
Less than five years ago the world's newest island, Surtsey, burst into life as a volcanic eruption some seventeen miles south-east of Iceland. It gave scientists their first opportunity to record and study the growth of a new piece of the earth's crust from the beginning.
Strict control is kept on visitors to the island, but last summer Robert Cundy was able to accompany international scientists on their various visits to Surtsey to study how the island is producing life from the sea and from the air.

Translated by Edmund Hill
Delivered by Roger Delgado
Music by Leonard Pearcey and Peter Wishart
In North Africa in the fifth century St. Augustine preached on the Old Testament Psalms as if they had been spoken by Jesus Christ and addressed to Augustine's own contemporaries. Fr. Edmund Hill has translated the sermons as if they were addressed to us. With the texts sung to an equally modern setting, parts of the sermons are delivered from the pulpit of All Hallows, London Wall

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.
