: Songs of Praise

for Holy Week from York Minster and Jerusalem From Jerusalem Geoffrey Wheeler relates the unfolding drama that took place there 2,000 years ago and meets visitors from Britain who talk of their feelings as they stand where the events happened.
In the spectacular setting of York Minster, Christians from the area are joined by returning pilgrims from Jerusalem to sing the well-loved hymns of Holy Week.
But it's the children of both cities that begin the joint celebration by re-enacting - as children the world over love to do -Jesus' triumphant Palm Sunday entry into Jerusalem-a procession that begins at the foot of the Hill of Olives and ends in the Great Nave of York Minster.
Ride on! ride on in majesty (Winchester new); All glory, laud, and honour (St Theodulph); Praise to the holiest in the height (Gerontius); Drop, drop slow tears (Orlando Gibbons); My song is love unknown (Love unknown); A cry in the night (Notting Hill); 0 sacred head sore wounded (Passion chorale); When I survey (Rockingham) Conductor PHILIP MOORE

: The Quiet Land

The Glens of Antrim come down from the quiet of the hills to the narrow water which links them with Scotland. Every Irish exile knows of the peace of these nine green glens. Visitors from many nations have been drawn there by stories of their beauty and the hospitality of the Glensfolk. In Glenaan is the reputed grave of Ossian, the greatest Celtic poet; Cushendun was the home of Moira O'Neill , poetess of the Glens; and in the same village the English Poet Laureate John Masefield found a wife.
In this, the most Irish part of the north of Ireland, Jack McCann , founder of the Glens of Antrim Historical Society, gives his impressions of this quiet land.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
