: THE BULL OF MINOS

by Leonard Cottrell
Over half a century ago Sir Arthur Evans began to unearth the Palace of Knossos in Crete, legendary home of King Minos. Following on the work of the German archaeologist, Schliemann, Evans revealed that there had existed in the Eastern Mediterranean a rich and splendid civilisation contemporary with that of Ancient Egypt. This programme retells the story of the discovery and of how the ancient Greek legends were proved to re&t on a basis of fact.

: THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD

Talk by the Rev. V. A. Demant
Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology, and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford
Under this title, which is the name of Breather Lawrence's devotional classe, Canon Domant will give four talks on the spiritual Me. They will be illustrated from the teachings of St. Paul, St. Bernard, and the author of ' The Cloud of Unknowing.' In this first talk Canon Demant considers the paradox that while God is everywhere, men have to overcome obstacles to find their way to Him.

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.
