Mother Teresa


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.
It is not how much you do, but how much love you put in the doing. MOTHER TERESA In 1950 a 40-year-old nun founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity to help the sick and dying in the slums of Calcutta. Today
Mother Teresa is the heart of an organisation with houses in 70 countries. Her zeal carries her through an exhausting schedule, regardless of personal comfort or safety. Her activities in war-torn Beirut led one startled officer to exclaim 'the last thing we wanted was a saint', but Mother Teresa succeeded where diplomats failed.

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.
