The Anaihemata is concerned with the inheritance of Western civilisation as perceived by ' a Londoner of Welsh and English parentage, of Protestant upbringing, of Catholic subscription.' The action takes place against the background of the Mass and thus, symbolically, of the Crucifixion. Of the eight sections, Rile and Fore-Time describes the emergence of man-as-artist. Middle-Sea and Lear-Sea recalls the flowering of civilisation on the shores of the Mediterranean, whence a ship sails to Lear's island of Britain. In Angle-Land the ship is driven by storms to the North Sea; in Redriff it is berthed in the Pool of London. The Lady of the Pool evokes the Roman foundations of the City. Keel, Ram, Stauros has for its theme the Tree of Calvary. Mabinog's Liturgy recalls the Annunciation and the Nativity, with an interlude on Guenevere at the Christmas Mass. Sherthursdaye and Venus Day describes, symbolically, the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The work ends with the theme of the Holy Cross.

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.
