: THE LOST CENTURIES

Five broadcasts on the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England 5-The Saxon Conquest
C. E. Stevens
Lecturer in Ancient History,
Magdalen College, Oxford
John Morris
Lecturer in History,
University College, London
C. L. Matthews amateur archaeologist
A period of fifty years' peace came to an end in the second half of the sixth century, when the Anglo-Saxon settlers were again on the move; by 650 they had conquered nearly all of what is now England, and the boundaries of England, Scotland, and Wales were taking shape.
In discussing the end of the Dark Ages the speakers consider what this period has to contribute to a general understanding of the history of these islands. How much Roman civilisation survived the Dark Ages? Is the Anglo-Saxon element really as important to us as the nineteenth-century historians believe? In fact, how Welsh are the English?

: YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR

A series of four Lenten talks by Professor V. A. Demant of Christ Church, Oxford
4-For God's
Sake God loveth all that he hath made; and he that loveth generally all his even-Christians for God, lie loveth all that is
In this last talk Canon Demant outlines what it means to love fellow creatures for God's sake. Illustrating his points from some great teachers of the spiritual life, he shows how growth in holiness weeds out the more disguised forms of egoism and can change a creaking effort to be brotherly into a spontaneous and attractive neighbourliness.

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.
