Talk by Richard Wollheim , Lecturer in Philosophy at University College, London.


Talk By: Richard Wollheim


(from Advent to the Nativity)
C. H. Trevor (organ)
Male voices from the Renaissance Singers
Conductor, Michael Howard
First of a series of six programmes arranged by Denis Stevens
The art of the Tudor organists (like that of the Elizabethan madrigalists several generations later) flowered, came to fruition, and faded in a remarkably short space of time. Before the reign of Henry VIII there seems to have been very little organ music in England, and after the Reformation the organ was used more as an ornament to the liturgy than as an actual part of it. This series of programmes will show that the contribution of the Tudor organists to the church music of their time was essentially of a solo nature, not an accompaniment. The composers represented held office not only in London but at York Minster, Waltham Abbey, St. George's Chapel (Windsor), and Winchester Cathedral. Denis Stevens


Organ: C. H. Trevor

Talk by Ivor Gowan
Lecturer in Public Administration,
University of Nottingham
Reviewing Great Cities of the World, edited by Professor W. A. Robson, Mr. Gowan considers some of the problems of local government in the modern metropolis. ' The crux of the matter,' he argues, ' is that the great city is the centre of power, the focal point of many forces of our national life. Can this centre of power also be given adequate local government? '

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.
