: Books That Frighten

NICHOLAS TUCKER , Lecturer in Developmental Psychology in the University of Sussex, has made a special study of the effect on children of the kind of frightening books - like Struwivelpeter and the fairy tales of the brothers Grimm-at which modern parents are likely to throw up their hands in horrified rejection.
He argues that this reaction is probably not the right one. and that children are more likely to be helped than harmed by these grim fantasies f

: Holy Week and its Music

The Passion and Death of Jesus Christ as illustrated by the music of the Roman Liturgy Introduced by FR AGNELLUS ANDREW. OFM with music recorded by THE CHOIR OF THE CARMELITE PRIORY, KENSINGTON. LONDON director JOHN MCCARTHY
This is a personal choice from the treasury of music of many centuries for the events from Palm Sunday to Easter Day.
Every year Christian worship turns to those eight days, trying to understand more of their terror and glory. Malcolm Williamson 's Procession of Valms catches our experience of cheering crowds, and of their underlying menace. The sixth-century processional Vexilia Regis sees the Cross as the sign of victory. The classical composers take the Passion and give it noble settings.
But today the need is also felt for kinds of music which congregations want to sing. So popular song also has it place.

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.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
