Leonard Pearcey explores the music rooms of the stately homes and palaces of Great Britain.
2: Blenheim Palace
The Great Willis Organ sounds again with the music of John Stanley and Handel and you can hear how the 18th-century Duke and Duchess entertained their guests with the sounds of the fashionable castrati, with Teiemann's
Tafelmusik, and the operas of Bonancini.
Roger Royle presents favourite hymns from St Michael 's and All Angels
Church, Maesteg in Wales. Father, Lord of all creation;
Let all the world in every corner sing; Guide me, 0 thou great redeemer; The strife is o'er; Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God almighty; Jesus shall reign; Mawr oedd crist yn nhragwyddoideb; Ave verum corpus.
Musical director Alun Jones
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.
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.
