: FUNDAMENTALISM

A discussion
The Times has recently published in pamphlet form the correspondence which arose out of the decision to use the University Church in Cambridge for Billy Graham's Mission to the University. The correspondence aroused wide interest in the question whether it was possible to carry on effective evangelism without holding a fundamentalist attitude to the Bible.
In this discussion three men of different views talk about the issues raised by the correspondence.
The Rev. George Duncan
Vicar of Christ Church, Cockfosters, who strongly supported Billy Graham's Greater London Crusade
The Rev. John Huxtable
Principal of New College, London who is Chairman of the British
Council of Churches' Committee on Evangelism
The Rev. Dennis Nineham
Professor of Theology at London University who sees the question from the point of view of the student of theology

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
