God's Own Country?
It's election year in the United States and middle
America is worried: worried about the dramatic increase in drug abuse, abortion,
AIDS and violent crime, a rising tide which is no longer just confined to the big cities. America is a deeply Christian country - 70 million
Americans claim to be 'born again' - and many think that the only solution to this moral vacuum is to make sure God is returned to centre stage in American politics. Many others are fighting hard to maintain the constitutional separation of Church and State.
Filmed against the colourful back-drop of the Presidential election, this programme explores the phenomenon of moral America on the march, and meets the two Christian candidates. Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson , who, from opposite ends of the political spectrum, are addressing the nation's moral misgivings. Film cameraman IAN STONE Film editor SUE SPIVEY
Everyman editor JANE DRABBLE

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.
