Nothing Wonderful At All

The Vision of Knock
Today, Pope John Paul II, Vicar of Christ on Earth, makes pilgrimage to a remote and windswept village on the west coast of Ireland.
One hundred years ago at the gable wall of the local church in Knock, Co Mayo, Mary the Mother of God appeared in a blaze of light to some 15 villagers. Their witness has transformed the village into a shrine for millions of pilgrims from all over the world, and the faithful in Ireland accept it as living proof of God's timely intervention in the lives of ordinary people.
Everyman has been to Knock to try to understand the nature of this faith, and the visions it produces - visions which, to the eye of faith, are ' nothing wonderful at all'.

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.
