Harvest is now one of the most important events in the Christian calendar and at the modern Cathedral of the Holy Spirit they celebrate tonight with a children's harvest festival service. The Cathedral looks out over some of the richest farming land in England and children from 92 parishes throughout the Guildford diocese have come to give thanks for harvest and sing their favourite hymns.... ,
This year harvest has a particular significance for 11-year-old Lisa Chong who is to be baptised today in her local church. Among other people Geoffrey Wheeler meets is
James Stovold , whose family has worked the land for generations and 12-year-old Edward Fraser whose allottment project shows harvest on a smaller scale.
Come. ye thankful people, come (St
George): All things bright and beautiful- King Jesus hath a garden; Feed us now. 0 Son of God; We plough he fields and scatter (Wir pflugen): Let us. with a gladsome mind (Monkland)
To thee. 0 Lord. our hearts we raise
(Golden Sheaves) Praise we the Lord.

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.
