: Songs of Praise

for Remembrance from Coventry and Dresden Songs of Praise for
Remembrance links two cities which suffered appalling damage during the Second World War. Coventry in the Midlands was bombed constantly to destroy its morale, while Dresden in East Germany was the victim of one of the most deadly air raids in history.
Roger Royle and Cliff Michelmore hear from the people of both cities about their experiences of war and discover some of the present links which have developed between the two cities since Coventry Cathedral's first message of forgiveness and reconciliation in 1940. They join congregations in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral and the reconstructed
Kreuzkirche in the heart of Dresden in a shared act of remembrance and reconciliation.
For the healing of the nations (Tantum ergo); Abide with me
(Eventide); Lobe den herren; Ein feste burg: I will lift up my eyes;
Suchet zuerst Gottes Reich in dieser Welt ; Dona nobis pacem; In Christ there is no east or west (Kilmamock). Coventry:

AIDS - The New Lepers
Five years ago, few people had heard of AIDS. Now, it is seen as one of the greatest health threats facing the modern world.
According to some medical sources, there could be 10,000 deaths in the UK from AIDS by 1990, with a further two million people carrying the virus. Yet attitudes to this killer disease are today dominated by ignorance and fear. AIDS has been described as 'God's gift to bigotry': from the gay community in particular come increasing reports of discrimination and violent attacks.
Jeremy Paxman reports on the causes and the consequences of present attitudes to AIDS. He meets people with the virus and those working to help prevent the spread of a disease which, in the United States, already affects over a quarter of a million people.

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.
