: CONVOCATION

A report by The Bishop of Rochester
The Established Church of England has two parliaments, which are known as the Convocations of Canterbury and York. Each consists of two Houses, an Upper House and a Lower House. The Upper House comprises all the Diocesan Bishops in the Province with the Archbishop presiding. The Lower House comprises a number of ex-officio members, mostly Deans and Provosts, in addition to elected representatives of the clergy.
The Convocation of Canterbury is meeting this week. Among the reports presented to it is one dealing with the rules to be observed by loyal members of the Church of England in relation to spiritual discipline. It discusses the underlying purpose of fasting and how this can be maintained under the conditions of modern life. The B'shop of Rochester has himself contributed an important section to this report. In this talk he gives a review of the meetings of Convocation this week and the way in which the report on spiritual discipline has been received.

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.
