Fotheringhay is one of the most beautiful churches in the county of Northampton; it formerly had collegiate status. The Communion rails are memorials to Edward, second Duke of York, who fell at Agincourt, and to Richard, third Duke of York, who was killed in the battle of Wake-field-they were erected by Queen Elizabeth.
The castle was built by Edmund,
Duke of York. Richard III was born there, and it was the scene of the execution of Mary Queen of Scots.
With the help of a grant from the Pilgrims Trust, some very urgent repairs on the church have just been completed, and a new reredos has been presented by Commander Joel.
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.
