CLIFF MICHELMORE takes a short break' in Dublin. Since Ireland joined the Common Market the Irish capital has become a truly European city, offering a degree of sophistication that will surprise those who still see the Irish in terms of long-irrelevant cliches. A city with style, and more besides.

: Songs of Praise

from St Andrews , Fife
The town of St Andrews has a name for excellence in what it offers to the tourist; the achievements of its ancient University and, of course, golf. Yet as James O'Hara discovers, the townspeople retain a high degree of canny common sense, as one might expect from the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Fife. They sing their praise in Hope Park Church.
Praise my soul (Praise my soul); 0 send thy light forth (Martyrs); Jesus shall reign (Warrington); The Lord's my shepherd (Crimond); Sing, my tongue (Pange Lingua); Sweet heart of Jesus (Fons Amoris); 0 Jesus I have promised (Wolvercote); Now thank we all our God (Nun danket)

The Dervish Way
British Mystics of Islam
The dervishes are best known for ' whirling ': a spinning dance that is also a mystical exercise. Dervishes are the mystics of Islam - a religion in worldwide revival. Britain has a large immigrant Muslim population, but very few converts to Islam. This film features a group of British people who have become dervishes (also known as ' Sufis '), a process which includes a conversion to Islam, and who now live according to the teachings of the Koran.

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.
