This is Thanksgiving Day, when Americans thank Almighty God for their nation and their preservation. But Is it right that, by tradition, the Pilgrim Fathers are always remembered and honoured on this day of spiritual renewal? No, say the Virginians. It can now be proved that a little band of adventurers from Berkeley in Gloucestershire held the first official Thanksgiving Service on American soil in Virginia in 1619, a year and 17 days before the Mayflower even dropped anchor.
From the James River in Virgina and the River

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.
