Chris Brasher remembers
1956. It was not only the year of his controversial victory at the Olympic Games, but also when Bert Trautmann broke his neck in the FA Cup Final; Jim Laker took 19 wickets for just 90 runs in one Test match; and Devon Loch collapsed before the finishing line during the Grand National. Producer CAROLINE ELLIOT
from the Parish Church of St Mary, Lawford,
Introduced by Robert Prizeman Hymns: Immortal love; Lift high the cross; Eternal Father, strong to save; 0 thou, who at thy Eucharist; And now, 0 Father; Christ is made the sure foundation; My God, how wonderful thou art; May the grace of Christ our Saviour; Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
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.
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.
