: THE FOUR GOSPELS

I-The story of the manuscripts
The Rev. H. F. D. Sparks , Durham
University
To prepare an extensive survey of the making and content of the Bible for broadcasting over a period of two years has been the task of those concerned in this new series, of which this morning's broadcast is the first. The first twelve talks will deal with the history of the present text of the Gospels. These will be followed by a second group on the teaching of the Gospels, while later on further broadcasts will examine the Epistles, the Acts of the Apostles, and parts of the Old Testament. It is hoped that all the talks will be found specially suitable for sixth-form listening.

: 'HIGH COMMAND'

A panorama outline of the Great War 1914-1918, as seen through the eyes of the German General
Staff
Script compiled by Igor Vinogradoff and Denis Johnston
Produced by Dallas Bower
This programme was first broadcast in the Home Service on Monday, August 4, 1941, exactly twenty-seven years after Great Britain declared war on Imperial Germany in 1914. The four years 1914-1918, in retrospect, provide strange parallels between that conflict and the present one.
The programme, of which the sources are original documents dealing with the Great War from the viewpoint of the German General Staff, shows how Germany's military successes were counterbalanced by the political blunders of the High Command.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
