from
ST. PETER'S, TIVERTON, DEVON
Conductor, Vernon Curtis
Organist, Eric Suddrick
Introduced by Dudley Savage
Blessing by the Rector, The Rev. C. S. Nye
Television presentation by John Dobson from the South and West
Good Christian men rejoice, and sing!
(Gelobt sei Goto
Here, 0 my Lord, I see thee face to face
(St. Agnes)
I will sing the wondrous story (HyfrydoD
Glad that I live am I (Water End)
He who would valiant be (Monk's Gate)
0 thou who earnest from above (Hereford)
Lift up your voice, ye Christian folk
(Ladywell)
Ye holy ant-els bright (Darwall's 148th)
0 worship the Lord (Was Lebett)
All creatures of our God and King (Lasst uns Erfreuen)
One of the interesting features of St. Peter's Church is the organ. During Oliver Cromwell 's Commonwealth the pipes of the original instrument were sold for £ 5 apiece, and the case for 15s. Following the Restoration St. Peter's was the first church in the diocese of Exeter to replace its organ, and Christian Schmidt , one of a family of famous German organ builders, was commissioned to build another. The magnificent case was embellished by Grinling Gibbons , the outstanding artist in wood carving.

BILL SIMPSON in The Barrier by PAT DUNLOP
Cast in order of appearance:
The series produced by arrangement with Graham Stewart
Script editor, John Mayr. ard Designer, Walter Miller
Producer, ROYSTON MORLEY
Directed by JULIA SMITH
Janet is behaving a little out of character in that, while she is normally easy-going and capable of holding her peace, she is now showing her irritation over even the slightest triviality. Unfortunately Cameron is too preoccupied with a patient to notice and when Finlay eventually points out that something may be wrong physically, it is almost too late for him to do anything.

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.
