PERCY BAKER , M.C.
This is the first religious service broadcast from Tewkesbury Abbey. The choir and both organs, including the Harris organ on which Milton played when it was at Hampton Court, have been relayed before. The Abbey is famous for its Norman tower, the great arch above the Norman Doorway, and the massive pillars of the nave. The murdered Duke of Clarence was buried under a vault behind the high altar. At the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the burgesses ransomed the Abbey Church from the Royal spoiler. After eight centuries the condition of the structure has made it necessary for an appeal for £25,000 to be issued in order that it may be preserved unimpaired for posterity ; and a body known as ' The Friends of Tewkesbury Abbey ' has been formed tojurther this appeal.

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.
