St. Wilfrid was born in 634, the son of a Northumbrian thegn, and died in 709, when he was visiting monasteries he had founded in Mercia.
His body was buried in the church of St. Peter at Ripon. His biographer, Eddius, wrote of him that he was ' courteous to everybody, active in body, a quick walker, eager for every good work, never cast down '. He is named in the Roman Martyrology, and several English dioceses keep his feasts.
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.
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.
