The Trumpet Shall Sound by JOHN FLETCHER
In 1866 at Walsingham in Norfolk, the revolt of the old church orchestra against the installation of a new organ led to the blowing up of the church with gunpowder. In 1873, in his attempt to set up an agricultural labourers union, the Primitive Methodist preacher Joseph Arch addressed farm workers from all over Somerset. In 1881, thousands of poor folk gathered on top of Ham Hill in Somerset, to await the end of the world. These are the events that have inspired this play, in which Jacob Stone , an impoverished farm labourer. prophesies the Second Coming of the Lord.

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.
