The Island of Glass
Michael Oliver journeys to Glastonbury and its famous Abbey. Amazingly rich in history and legend, St Dunstan. St Patrick, King Arthur, the Grail and Chalice Well arc only part of Glastonbury's story. According to medieval traditions. Joseph of Arimathea not only brought vessels containing the blood and sweat of Christ, but also part of the crown of thorns and the cup of the Last Supper to Glastonbury. Here on the Druidic Isle of Avalon, or ' Ynyswitryn ' - the Glass Island - he built the first primitive church of wood and wattle, the Vetusta Ecclesia - the Great Church.

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.
