The Indians, hiding in the reeds, dragged our canoe ashore and one of them swung Lydia over his shoulder like a rag poppet. We all fought, but 'twasn't any use against twenty Red Men. They pushed the canoe out into the stream, throwing the paddles after it. Then they tied our hands and hurried us silenrly through the forest.'

: TWO STATEMENTS ON EPISCOPACY

Speakers :
The Rev. G. L. Prestige ,
D.D. Canon and Treasurer of St. Paul's Cathedral
The Reiv. E. A. Payne , D.D.
General Secretary of the Baptist Union
Some years ago the Archbishop of Canterbury suggested in a sermon at Cambridge that t'he non-episcopalian churches might prepare the next step towards reunion by taking some form of episcopacy into their systems. This has given rise to a number of official statements, including Church Relations in England,' a report of a Joint Committee. The subject has also been studied by theologians of all denominations.
In May of this year Dr. Prestige preached a sermon before the University of Cambridge on 'The Gift of Bishopric,' which clarified a number of important points and stated the case for the acceptance of episcopacy by the various branches of the Christian Church. Dr. Payne has also written and spoken about the Free Churches' attitude to the suggestion made by the Archbishop.

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.

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.
