A Long Way from Home
' Just give a cup of water to one; and when you've helped one, move on to another.' Barbara Walker struggles under difficult conditions to keep alive the 67,000 refugees in Las Dureh camp, Northern Somalia. She is one of the vast army of missionaries who, at the season when families and loved-ones are reunited, endure separation from personal roots in their battle for a better world.
Colin Morris , who went to Zambia 25 years ago, travels back to the mission fields of Africa on a journey that leads from a pioneer station in the Turkana desert to a London suburb, and gives a vision of how ' the call' will be answered in the future.

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.
