: The Camera and the Song

The Camera of Nat Crosby and the Songs of Ralph McTell Childhood
' Sundays as a rule
Us kids went to Sunday School, And Mrs Adlam said,
Angels stood round our bed
To keep us safe from dark - right through till day began,
And we used to lie awake just to try and see one,
And though we never saw one anywhere,
We heard them softly singing in the air '.
RALPH MCTELL 's songs evoke the world of his London boyhood, and the documentary camera catches its reflections in present-day Plumstead.
Musical arranger BILL sOUTHGATE


Unknown: Mrs Adlam
Unknown: Ralph McTell
Unknown: William Southgate

The fourth in a season of films featuring the new cinema of Latin America starring
Atila Iorio
Nelson Xavier Maria Gladys
An ex-soldier, appalled by the apathy of starving villagers in the face of persecution and the loss of their only food reserves, tries to incite them into action.
This early example of ' cinema novo' powerfully conveys the message that the people can do nothing against political oppression and military force.

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.
