: FOR THE CHILDREN

Christian England
3—' The Canterbury Pilgrims '
By Alec MacDonald
MARCUS BARRON
(by permission of Sydney Carroll)
HENRY HEPWORTH
FELIX AYLMER
IAN DAWSON
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
This afternoon the Rector and his son Michael will go for a tramp into the country and, which is much more important, into the past. They take the Pilgrims' Way, the way that Chaucer's pilgrims took in 1380, so it is fitting that they should meet Chaucer himself. He takes them into Canterbury on horseback, and on the road describes the martyrdom of Becket. Inside the Cathedral a monk shows the party the tomb and the shrine as it then appeared.
The play is written by Alec MacDonald , author of the series ' Christian England '. Felix Aylmer will play Chaucer ; Marcus Barron and Henry Hepworth will play their usual parts as the Rector and Michael ; and Ian Dawson , who appears regularly in this series, will be the monk who shows the party round the Cathedral.

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.
