Minister of the Augustine-Bristo
Congregational Church.
Edinburgh Alec Robertson
In a book Church Music and Theology, published last year, Erik Routley argued the relevance of moral theology and doctrine to the composition and performance of church music. Alec Robert son invites Dr. Routley, as a historian and critic of church music, and Dr. Howells, as a leading composer in this field, to comment on an argument which raises issues of principle and practice. The discussion is illustrated with recorded excerpts of English church music, ranging from Victorian anthem to ' anglicised ' Gelineau chant and Beaumont's Folk Mass.

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.
