: THE NATIONAL COVENANT

Four Views
I-G. D. Henderson
This will be the first of a series of four talks given by speakers of widely differing viewpoints on one of the most important events in Scottish history. It is appropriate that this subject should come up for discussion during the tercentenary year of the signing of the Covenant. The first speaker, Professor Henderson, of Aberdeen University, will speak of the Covenant as it affected the history of the Scottish Church, and will thus represent the point of view of the theological historian.

Characters
The Story
In Fairyland arrive two knights
Whose doughty deeds in fearsome fights
Have covered both with glory ; Sir Ethais, of handsome mien,
Who loves the ladies, tells the Queen
The same old fairy story!
He wins her heart, but earthly bliss Within her kingdom comes amiss ;
It shakes her throne's foundations!
For jealous hatred takes the stage While pixielated prigs rampage, And fragile fairies rant and rage At indiscreet flirtations!
(The rhymed narration written by the producer)
The BBC Women's Chorus and the BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson

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.
