Carry Me Away


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.
Early this year, in the ballroom of a London hotel, a thousand disciples of India's most notorious guru-Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh-gathered to proclaim what they believe is a revolutionary discovery: to achieve enlightenment, you don't have to suffer first. Religion can and should be fun. Rajneesh claims that Christianity is obsessed with suffering; by contrast he offers a religion of ' total life affirmation '.
The tabloid papers hailed the London event as a ' Love-Cult Romp ' and a ' Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses Sex Orgy'. But is there more to the movement than the headlines and exposes suggest? Rajneesh has now left India to set up ' the largest spiritual community in the world'. '. Everyman examines the movement in England and asks: Does its growing popularity have something to tell us about the decline of conventional religion?


Producer: David M. Thompson

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.
