THIS is a welcome reappearance of the Christmas Eve Carol Service from King's College, which was broadcast in 1928 and 1929. It is one of the loveliest services to be heard anywhere: the King's College Choir is celebrated, recruiting its members from the College itself and the College Choir School. The first carol is sung by the Choir as it enters the Chapel; of the rest, somo are sung by the Choir alone, in others the congregation joins. The carols are separated by lessons, road by the Provost and other members of the College and by tho representatives of tho town. King's College Chapel is the chief glory of the University and amongst the finest ecelesiastical buildings in England. In spite of the unusual arrangement of the Chapel and of tho tremendous echo, the first relay of the Carol Service in 1928 was hailed as one of the most successful Outside Broadcasts ever made.

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.
