A Chronicle of English History by David Ayerst
3-The Church Universal:
A Tale of Two Bishops
While Agincourt and Bannockbum were being fought, history of another sort was made in the West Country. Bishop Stapledon of Exeter, travelling through his enormous diocese, helped to nourish the growth of the Church, and even at Constance in Germany the singing of the Salisbury monks was listened to with admiration.


Unknown: David Ayerst

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
