: The Seven Last Words of Christ from the Cross

John Shirley-Quirk (baritone) The Evangelists:
April Cantelo (soprano) Maureen Lehane (alto) Robert Tear (tenor) Don Garrard (bass) with CHARLES SPINKS (chamber-organ) ROBERT spencer (chitarrone) HEINRICH SCHiiTZ CHOIR and ENSEMBLE OF STRINGS conducted by Roger Norrington
The Seven Last Words which Jesus spoke as he died on the Cross form the central point of Christian meditation on Good Friday. Heinrich Schutz , the greatest German composer before Bach, was a devout Christian. This work, written about 1645 is a simple, concise setting of Christ's last words, linked by narrative.
In this performance the production reflects this symmetry and the underlying drama of the work. Schutz drew his text from all four Gospels: it will be sung in an English translation adapted to modern idiom. The performance was recorded in the beautiful Wren church of St Stephen Walbrook in the city of London and includes Rembrandt paintings of the Passion of Christ.

: Wheelbase: Sixty Miles on a Gallon?

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring with Michael Frostick.
Petrol is often the most expensive part of a motoring holiday, and this Easter weekend 8 million cars are expected to be on the road. How far can extra mpg cut the cost of motoring? Some petrol companies claim that their fuel gives added mileage: is this true? Wheelbase looks for some answers along the 1,000-mile route of the Mobil Economy Run, an annual event in which 40 family motorists use good maintenance and every kind of driving technique to cover the maximum number of miles on a gallon.

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.
