God: What Shall We Tell the Children?
The task of schools is twofold - to teach knowledge and to ease children into the ways of our society. The trouble is that we are in the throes of choosing just what our society is.
While many affirm that this country is still Christian, others say that we are the most non-religious country in the world. An increasing number, however, say that religion just will not go away, and speak excitedly of the dawn of a new multi-faith society, bringing - to quote the Archbishop of Canterbury - 'A vision of the brotherhood of all races rooted in the universal Fatherhood of God'. This week the Church of England Parliament debates this issue. Many of the bishops will be concerned that an increasing number of headmasters are deciding to ignore the intentions of the law which provide for a Christian assembly each morning, and are choosing to go their own way.

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.
