" Anno Domini-The Flight Into
By Edwin Long , R.A.
This painting depicts the Holy Mother seated on a donkey with the Infant Jesus in her arms and Joseph walking by their side.
They are passing a great procession which is taking place in honour of the Egyptian Goddess Isis, and her son Horus, whose images arc being borne aloft through crowds of worshippers. In the foreground are the sellers of idols, charms, and necklets, the whole forming a strikingly dramatic contrast. We commence our " Picture " before the arrival of the Holy Family, and with the procession in the distance.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
