Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.' Jesus Christ spoke those words of himself before his death, and his Resurrection helps us to understand their meaning. But they do not apply only to him; they lay bare a principle of ' Life through death ' which is God's purpose for all men. and for aU spheres of life. Apart from this faith, we tend to hold on to what we know. fearful of what the future may bring.
This service is the second of four that will apply this principle to our own lives, to the life of the Church, to the Bible, and to the world in which we live. In each of these spheres, what does it mean to find life through losing it?

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.
