2: Westminster Abbey. There is a strong musical tradition at Westminster Abbey, whose celebrated organists include Orlando Gibbons , John Blow and Henry Purcell. Purcell was buried in the abbey to the accompaniment of his own funeral music written for the death of Queen Mary, who died just a few months earlier. The abbey is known as a "royal peculiar", and although similar to a cathedral, it is not the seat of a bishop. Throughout its history, the abbey has played host to virtually all royal marriage, coronation and funeral ceremonies, including, most recently, that of Diana, Princess of Wales.

"Everyman." according to Samuel Johnson , "is, or hopes to be, an Idler.", while for Oscar Wilde , "Work is the curse of the drinking classes." If work has rarely been popular as a central literary theme, representations of work nonetheless abound in pieces by novelists and theologians to philosophers and diarists. In his new anthology The
Oxford Book of Work, historian
Keith Thomas draws on these sources from across the centuries. He talks to Richard Coles about the contradictory and changing attitudes they reveal about this central experience of human life. Producer Lawrence Pollard

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.
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.
