There has always been a close relation and sometimes a strong tension between the English people and the English Church. In the management of the English Church there is a premier as well as a primate. Most Englishmen are laymen, and nowadays more and more laymen are becoming Churchmen. This situation raises interesting and even critical questions.
First of five talks
Three programmes of gramophone records from ' The History of Music in Sound' issued in conjunction with volume 1 of the New Oxford History of Music
3-India and Islam
Including examples of Indian classical music and traditional songs from Iraq, Morocco, and Tunisia.
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.
