: The Saturday Feature: Singing with the Spirit

"There are in England some 13,000 churches. Together they represent an enormous body of musical energy and enthusiasm." So wrote Sydney Nicholson, then organist of Westminster Abbey. He gave up the most important cathedral appointment in England to found his School of English Church Music, dedicated to raising musical standards in churches. In this its Diamond Jubilee Year the Royal School of Church Music, as it is now known, is confronted by a different climate. Standards have never been higher but the Church, as it has faced the cultural changes of the 60s and 70s, has tried to take on board the most virulent aspect of that culture, it's music. How should this markedly traditional institution respond?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
