from Hadleigh in Suffolk
Years ago gathering in the harvest was the highlight of the country calendar. Today however, a mechanised operation seems impersonal and, for many, the only true feel of harvest left is the special Church services.

Praise to the Lord (Praxis pietatis); All creatures of our God (Easter Song); Praise and thanksgiving (Bunessan): Sing to the Lord of harvest (Hosanna): 0 Lord, how happy should we be (Advent); Come ye thankful people, come (St George): We plough the fields (Wir pflugen); God is love (Hyfrydol).

: Nothing Wonderful At All

The Vision of Knock
Today, Pope John Paul II, Vicar of Christ on Earth, makes pilgrimage to a remote and windswept village on the west coast of Ireland.
One hundred years ago at the gable wall of the local church in Knock, Co Mayo, Mary the Mother of God appeared in a blaze of light to some 15 villagers. Their witness has transformed the village into a shrine for millions of pilgrims from all over the world, and the faithful in Ireland accept it as living proof of God's timely intervention in the lives of ordinary people.
Everyman has been to Knock to try to understand the nature of this faith, and the visions it produces - visions which, to the eye of faith, are ' nothing wonderful at all'.

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.
