: Blizzard's Wizard Woodwork

If you've ever wanted a computer desk, a hi-fi video centre, bunk beds or a rocking chair, these are just a few of the items which
Richard Blizzard will be making in this series of seven programmes. 3: Oak Steak Plates
There was a time when most people ate off wooden platters. In this programme Richard Blizzard shows how to carve a steak platter out of oak and how to carve and fit handles on to steak knives and forks. In the garden he makes the ideal picnic table. Director PAULA GILDER
Producer PETER RAMSDEN (R)
DIY HANDY HINT
Shaping Up
Carving is most relaxing, very creative and takes up little space. To start try the Marples curved blade carving knife and get to work on a bar of soap. Soap carving is the simplest way to learn the basic cuts of 'wood whittling'.
Fascinating shapes can soon be whittled from wood scraps or an old favourite, gnarled Ivy roots.

: Songs of Praise

for Advent Sunday
Sutherland in the far northwest of Scotland is a land of empty moors, peat-brown streams and forbidding mountains. A country where sheep outnumber people by ten to one. It's a harsh landscape whose biblical severity makes a strong faith essential, and where the good news of Advent and the coming of the Lord seems particularly welcome.
Ian GaU finds himself caddying for the Minister of Domoch Cathedral on the Royal Dornoch Golf Course and meeting people from every comer of the county, who come together in the cathedral to sing their Advent hymns. Hills of the north (Little Comard); Jesus calls us (St Andrew); Trust and obey; I waited for the Lord
(Ballerma); The Lord's my shepherd (Orlington); 0 brother man
(Londonderry Air); Approach my soul the mercy seat (Stracathro); Hark the glad sound (Bristol). Conductor DONALD GOSKIRK Organist ELEANOR GRAY Producers

: Everyman

A Fairly Honourable Defeat The Church of England is today on the defensive in the inner cities, apparently irrelevant in a hostile world of unemployment, deprivation and riots. But the problems it is facing are not new ones. In the week the Archbishop of Canterbury's
Commission on the Church in the City publishes its findings, Everyman asks: has the Church ever been at home in Britain's industrial areas? Or has it always, as its critics maintain, dined with the rich and preached to the poor?
The film goes to one English town - Middlesbrough and examines the Church's record there over the last 150 years. It reveals a story of lethargy and energy, of indifference and concern, of occasional victories and persistent defeats.

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.
