' The Edinburgh Conference'
Sir Henry Lunn , M.D.
(From Edinburgh)
The first World Conference on Faith and Order was held at Lausanne, in Switzerland, in 1927, the object being the reunion of the churches of Christendom. Over 400 delegates were present, representing more than 100 Churches. They sat for nearly three weeks, and produced a report recording agreements and disagreements reached in the course of the discussions. The report was circulated. The responses of the churches began to come in. Steps were then taken to promote the joint study of outstanding matters of disagreement by theologians representing different churches ; and eventually a second World Conference was called. It met in Edinburgh on August 3.
This afternoon Sir Henry Lunn , who has been with the movement from the very beginning and has spent much of his life in trying to forward the cause of Christian reunion, is to give a short historical outline of the various efforts that have been made for Christian unity during the last ten years.
Next Sunday the Archbishop of York will broadcast his impressions of the present conference.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
