South Africa Loves Jesus


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.
A new documentary by Hugh Burnett who reports on the violent and peaceful ways in which Christianity and Apartheid exist side by side.

African guerrillas - aided with money from the World Council of Churches - nail small children to trees to wither in the sun: it's claimed by the Moderator of the Dutch Reformed Church in the Cape. Racial segregation in church is based on biblical teaching, says Dr. J.D. Vorster, newly elected head of the Dutch Reformed Church and brother of the Prime Minister.

Love dictates violence, when what you love is attacked, said the Dean of Johannesburg, before he was arrested. The trends in South Africa will inevitably mean a bigger blood-bath than Vietnam, says an African theological student.
They all speak in the name of Christ and are prepared to die for their convictions. But in South Africa even Christians have to compromise.

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.
