A CAROL SERVICE

THE BBC CHORUS
(Section C) and members of THE BBC MILITARY BAND
Conducted by LESLIE WOODGATE from St. Mary's, Whitechapel
God rest you merry, gentlemen
On Christmas night all Christians sing The first Nowell
The holly and the ivy
Angels from the realms of glory The Coventry Carol
Unto us a boy is born
(All from the Oxford Book of Carols, published by O.U.P.)
Fourteen years ago, in the first year of broadcasting, the Rev. John A. Mayo , Rector of St. Mary's, Whitechapel, gave the first sermon ever heard on the air ; and to celebrate the anniversary of the first Christmas he suggested that some singers should come down from Marconi House to his church on Christmas Eve, and that their singing of carols be broadcast. Again this evening the BBC Chorus, twenty strong, and some members of the Military Band-two clarinets, two cornets, a bassoon, an euphonium, a flute, and a bass-are to go down to Whitechapel.
In an interlude between the carols,
Mr. Mayo, of long custom, will give a ' little chat' about Whitechapel, about his work there, and about the parishioners he has grown to love. And, at the end of the singing, the ' waits' will wend away with Mr. Mayo to the little Christmas feast he has prepared.

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.
