: THE CHRISTIAN IMPACT ON PAKISTAN

Talk by the Rev. Andrew Thakur Das
Pastor of Naulakha Church, Lahore
The speaker discusses the position of the Christian Church in tthe Moslem State of Pakistan. He shows how it has related itself to the new sense of nationhood and has avoided the danger of becoming an alien movement. Unlike some other Moslem lands, Pakistan has a long tradition of Christianity. Mr. Thakur Das is pastor of a large church in Lahore which is self-supporting and in no way dependent on funds from rhe West. He is also executive secretary of the West Pakistan Christian Council. As a delegate of the United Church in Pakistan, he attended the third Conference on ' Faith and Order ' recently 'held in Lund, Sweden, where this talk was recorded.

Bornholm, which belongs to Denmark, lies about ninety miles north-east of Copenhagen, and its chief industry is the catching, drying, and smoking of herrings.

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.
