: THE DAY WE MADE IT RAIN

by Alan Yates
Will the time come when men will be able to make the rain ' go away and come again another day'? This possibility is being taken seriously and many experiments have been made. Alan Yates , who took part in one in the summer of 1952, describes what happened as he sat in his glider in the middle of a cumulus cloud over Bedfordshire.

: THE LOST CENTURIES

Five broadcasts on the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England
3—The Historical Arthur
C. A. Ralegh Radford formerly Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Wales and Director of the British School at Rome
John Morris
Lecturer in History.
University College. London
C. L. Matthews amateur archaeologist
Was there really a King Arthur? The legend of a King and h:s knights first appears in the twelfth ctntury. The name Arthur '— commander of a British army, who defeated the Saxons at Badon-goes back to an eighth-century chronicle, but the events he is concerned with took place between A.D. 450 and 500. How much do subsequent writers really know about Arthur; what foundation has the legend; and how does it fit into the stormy history of the late fifth century?
Speakers in this programme discuss the British resistance to Saxon invaders in the late fifth century and evidence (archaeological and literary) for the existence of a leader called Arthur.

: YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR

A series of four Lenten talks by Professor V. A. Demant of Christ Church, Oxford 2
-The Christian Disposition
' If anyone thinks that a man by falling in love or by having found a friend has learned to know the Christian love, then he is seriously mistaken.' (Kierkegaard)
Canon Demant distinguishes between several kinds of love. While many of them are practised magnificently by people of other religions or of none, - one kind of love requires resources open only to Christian faith and life. He shows how the Christian can gain in capacity to love his neighbour by overcoming his own inner disorders and the obstacles he meets outside.

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.
