: Everyman

Santa.
Twas the night before
Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
Santa Claus personifies the spirit of Christmas and embodies all our feelings of joy, faith, goodwill and renewed hope at the turn of the year. It is from the 19th-century American poem
A Visit from St Nicholas that our modern image of the jolly, red-robed, gift-bearing
Santa has emerged. This poem drew together many
European myths and legends surrounding the celebration of the winter solstice; Odin, the Norse god; and St Nicholas , the 4th-century Bishop of Myra. It was syndicated by Harpers magazine and became enormously popular through the illustrations of THOMAS NAST. Everyman traces the evolution of Santa Claus and talks to Sir Yehudi Menuhin , Raymond Briggs , Bruno Bettelheim ,
Sheila Kitzinger and Count Andrew von Staufer about the magic and mystery of this timeless figure of Christmas.

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.

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