He resolves to put some of the magic back into Christmas by putting Santa back where he belongs - on a rooftop near a chimney. Clegg is an obvious, if unwilling, helper, but who does he know who has the charisma and the wellies to play Father Christmas?

: Everyman

Paradise in Peril
When he visited Fiji last year, Pope John Paul called it 'a symbol of hope in the world'. He found 'people of diverse cultures ... living in harmony and peace'.
Now this peace has been destroyed by two military coups; religions and races are divided.
Brigadier Rabuka, the man behind the coups, is a Methodist lay preacher. Why has this devout
Christian wanted to deny over half the population their political rights and restrict their religious freedom? And what prospects are there for harmony in the future? Martin Young talks to
Brigadier Rabuka and other Fijian political and religious leaders, and analyses the significance of what's been happening.

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.
