: A Passion for Churches

The last of three favourite films by Sir John Betjeman
Tonight his celebration of the C of E, filmed in the Diocese of Norwich at Easter.
It was in Norfolk, rowing with his father on the River Bure , that the infant John Betjeman first noticed a church tower outlined against the sky. Now Sir John returns to celebrate the art and architecture of the diocese's spectacular churches, and to look with affectionate humour at the daily life of the Anglican church in town and country: the Mothers' Union picnics in the cathedral cloisters; NIGEL and CELIA wed in the country; the Chaplain of the Broads rounds up his floating flock; and on Easter Day, there are rites at sunrise on Britain's eastern-most tip.

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.
