: THE LOST CENTURIES

Five broadcasts on the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England
4-The Age of the Saints
E. G. Bowen
Professor of Geography and Anthropology at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth
John Morris
Lecturer in History at University College, London
C. L. Matthews amateur archaeologist
The first half of the sixth century-a period of peace, following the British victory at Badon-is one of the darkest periods of the Dark Ages, and, in south-eastern Britain, there is neither written nor archaeological evidence to tell us what was happening.
For the north-west of Britain, however, Welsh records have preserved a number of Saints' lives, which combine with the accounts of the contemporary writer Gildas to give a vivid picture of the Celtic Christianity of the period, and of the monastic saints who went from South Wales to convert Southern Ireland, Cornwall, and Btittany to a life of piety, learning, and hard work.
The evidence on which this knowledge is based is literary rather than archaeological, hut Professor Bowen shows what geography and a knowledge of personal and place names have to contribute to it. Speakers also discuss the nature of the Celtic Christianity and its possible connection with the Eastern Mediterranean.

: YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR

A series of fourLenten talks by Professor V. A. Demant of Christ Church, Oxford
3-The Unknown Millions
How do we recognise the Neighbour in people we never meet but who are linked with us in society, and how do we show our love to them? Canon Demant tries to answer these questions. He deals with a Christian concern for a good social order, the relation of justice to love, and the problem of a change of heart or a change of system.

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.
