Today's programme concludes
Radio 2's annual Faith in the World week, which explores the divisive subject of God. Guests include singer and guitarist Guy Garvey (of rock band Elbow). And author
Simon Jenkins (England's Thousand Best Churches) and writer Rhidian Brook debate the value of keeping up very old church buildings.
Today's special edition features the show's most reguested stage and screen tunes, including selections from Call Me Madam, (1950), The Sound of Music (1959), Robert and Elizabeth (1964), Hairspray (2002) and The Woman in White (2004). The show's producer and occasional participant Malcolm Prince picks a song from Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein 's
1983 musical La Cage aux Folies.
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.
