Everyman: Holy Russia: One Thousand Years


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
"We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth."
One thousand years ago, this testimony to the splendour of the Greek Church in Constantinople persuaded the ruler of medieval Russia to choose Orthodox
Christianity as the state religion. This choice had profound consequences for the development of Russia, helping to isolate it from the West and contributing to a sense of mystery which is still felt today.
The history of the Russian state is inextricably linked with the Orthodox Church.
The Church has consistently safeguarded national consciousness, despite centuries of invasions, internal conflict and oppression.
This week the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates its millennium. How has it been able to survive when the state has taken on different forms, some alien to its doctrines, and what effect has this had on the Church in Russia?

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.
