Celebrating the best of Broadway, Hollywood and the West End. In the spotlight this week is
Carousel, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. It's been described as "the most glorious of the Rodgers and Hammerstein works" and "one of the finest musical plays".
Roger Royle tells the story of St James , one of Jesus's closest followers, whose feast day is tomorrow. This week's guest choir, the Pilgrim Consort, made a pilgrimage last year to his shrine in Spain and recorded hymns on the journey, including Who Would True Valour See?, Come with Me, Come Wander and Love Divine.
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

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.
