Blessing
Brother Lawrence was a young lay brother who lived in a monastery in France about three hundred years ago. He had a dull and humdrum job in the monastery kitchen but, amid all the noise and clatter, he formed the habit of keeping God continually in his thoughts and wrote one of the most famous books about prayer, ' The Practice of the Presence of God.' His story illustrates our Lord's saying: ' Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth ' (St. Matthew 5, v. 5).

11.40 TALKS FOR SIXTH FORMS. The History of Science. 10—' Scientific Developments in the Early Nineteenth Century.' F. Sherwood Taylor, Curator of the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, gives the tenth of sixteen talks by various speakers on the origins and results of the Scientific Revolution rhis talk shows how, in the early nineteen'.h century, pure science (e.g., study of the atomic theory in chemistry, and of the electric current) and applied science (e.g., use of the steam engine in industry) seemed less closely connected than they are today. But advances in both fields arose from the same cause-belief in the power of the scientific method, which had been developing tnroughout the previous century.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
