: Domesday

The last of five programmes written and presented by Michael Wood The People
Midsummer's Night - Cornish people gather on Land's End to light a beacon and celebrate ancient Celtic tradition. They live in England but are they
English? Michael Wood explores the English nation from its invention to the present and asks, 'Who are the English?' There are clues in London's East End streets and at Henley's Regatta, in our names and even in our bones. He stumbles into the mosque which has been a church and a synagogue. We meet families from the West Indies, whose home was in Africa but whose pedigree is as English as anyone's. Now Michael resolves issues he has raised in the series and asks a final question: 'Who will the English be when
Domesday is 1000 years old'? Assistant producers

Carols by Candlelight from Ripon Cathedral
Eleven hundred years ago,
King Alfred issued a charter to establish the city of Ripon. To mark this event, he presented a horn which is still sounded each night. It is sounded for the start of this special Christmas programme which is introduced by Cliff Michelmore. He hears about Christmas past in Ripon workhouse and finds the army playing host to today's pensioners. Roger Royle meets young people from the city to discover their
Christmas message for the future. Ian Gall visits a Dr Barnardo's home in the former palace of the Bishop of Ripon. The people of Ripon gather in their historic cathedral to tell the Christmas story and sing their carols by candlelight. Carols: 0 little town of Bethlehem; Adam lay y bounden; It came upon the midnight clear; The donkey carol; Angels from the realms of glory; Silent night; While shepherds watched; For unto us a Son is born; The zither carol; Torches; Hark the herald angels sing; Myn Lyking; We wish you a merry Christmas; 0 come all ye faithful.

The Galilean Moons
Jupiter is now prominently visible in the evening sky. Any telescope will show it together with its four large satellites, known as the Galileans because they were studied in 1610 by Galileo with his first telescope. They are not alike; two are icy and cratered, one smooth as a billiard ball, and one brilliant red, with violently active volcanoes. Patrick Moore talks about the Galileans, and what we have learned about them from space missions. Producer PIETER MORPURGO

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.
