: Songs of Praise

from Eton College
In the five and a half centuries since Henry VI created a religious foundation at Eton, it has become one of the most famous schools in the world and grown into a community whose life affects every aspect of that small town on the Thames.
Tonight Roger Royle returns to the school where he was once Senior Chaplain to talk to the present-day descendants of King Henry's '70 poor scholars' about the Eton world, and to discover what role Christianity still has to play in the school.
All people that on earth do dwell (Old Hundredth); A prayer of King Henry VI; Dear lord and father of mankind
(Repton); Glorious things of thee are spoken (Austrian hymn); My song is love unknown; Jerusalem; The day thou gavest (St Clement)

: * Heart of the Matter

with Helena Kennedy Each week, behind the headlines of the news, there are issues in public or private morality which we sometimes ignore. They touch our prejudices and passions, our insecurities and doubts. Yet it is the way we settle these issues which in the end moulds our society. Helena Kennedy examines one of these questions and talks to the people involved to discover what is at the Heart of the Matter.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
