1 — ' Towards a World Christian
His Grace the Lord Archbishop of York
The World Missionary Conference held at Edinburgh in 1910 was the beginning of what is called the ' (Ecumenical Movement' among the Protestant Churches, the aim of which is the furtherance of understanding and co-operation between the denominations. The movement towards unity was delayed by the war, but the Conference of British Missionary Societies and similar bodies came into existence in Great Britain, North America, and on the continent of Europe, and these in turn were linked together through the International Missionary Council.
Then followed the ' Copec ' Conference in Birmingham in 1924, the ' Life and Work' Conference at Stockholm in 1925, and the ' Faith and Order ' Conference at Lausanne in 1927. In 1928 the Council convened a meeting at Jerusalem, and in the summer of last year there were further great gatherings-that on ' Church, Community, and State ', held at Oxford, and another ' Faith and Order' Conference, at Edinburgh.
A further World Missionary Conference was to have been held at the end of the year at Hangchow, in China, but the tragic developments in the Far East made this impossible. The site therefore has been changed to Madras, and the Conference will be held in the new buildings of the Madras Christian College at Tambaram, fifteen miles from the city of Madras, from December 10 to December 30.
Today the Archbishop of York,
Vice-Chairman of the International Missionary Council, will say something about the problem to be faced in East and West China, and about the common need of action by the whole Church. Broadcast talks by different speakers will be given on every Sunday in February.

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.
