Produced by David Davis
' After the story I told you last week, Uncle George decided that it was time we went West for the last part of our holiday. If you remember, the weather wasn't very friendly last year, and there was a lot of westerly wind, so that it was easier to say " Let's go to the West Country! " than to achieve it. We set out with moderate south-westerly wind, and got safely past St. Albans Head and Portland Bill. It was when we were halfway from anywhere that the weather worsened ...'

: WE INTEND TO STAY TOGETHER

4— 'Life and Work ' by Dr. R. C. Mackie
Director of the Department of Inter-Church Aid and Service to Refugees of the World Council of Churches
One of the most obvious effects of the World Council of Churches has been its practical work. The service to refugees, the help to churches under emergency conditions, and all the care for helpless people which every Christian readily gives are gathered together in a movement that used to be called ' Life and Work.' In this talk Dr. Mackie explains what the Churches are doing together.

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.
