: LEARNING THE LANGUAGE ON THE SPOT

by Agnes Ingle
The spot was Peking between the wars and the language was Chinese. Mrs. Ingle found it deceptively easy at first. It was only when she came to realise the subtleties and that the same Chinese word can mean the number ten, a flag, a lion, and several other things—just depending on the way you say it-that she knew she would never come near mastering the language.

Five broadcasts on the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England

John Morris
Lecturer in History
University College. London
C. L. Matthews amateur archaeologist
What actually happened in Britain between A.D. 400 and 450, when the central authority of the Roman Province collapsed? What sort of people were the first Saxons-when did' they begin to settle in Britain? And what customs did they bring with them? Was Hengist a real or a legendary leader?
In discussing possible answers to such questions as these, the speakers use the evidence available to put the puzzle together and show what pieces are still missing.

: YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR

A series of four Lenten talks by Professor V. A. Demant of Christ Church, Oxford
1-Who is my neighbour?
The - most necessary man is he with whom you are, for no man knows whether he will have dealings with anyone else.' (Tolstoy)
Canon Demant describes the importance of recognising the neighbour in others. This or that person is our neighbour, not of our choice but sent by God. He shows that it is often difficult to see the neighbour in those who are very close to us, and what the Christian religion means by loving them as ourself.

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.
