The original Cathedral of Coventry was destroyed in Henry VIII 's time ; but its remains can still be traced. The present Cathedral, St. Michael's, dates from the last quarter of the 14th century and is one of the finest examples of the Perpendicular style. The tower, octagon, and spire rise to a height of 296 feet.
Very Rev. R. T.

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.
