: THE WAY OF LIFE

A series of programmes in which Christians think about their faith
Problems of Power
In tonight's programme, which is the second of two on this theme, the emphasis shifts from physical power to social power. The organisation of people into units of social power is becoming a characteristic of modern life and one that presents urgent problems in relation to individual integrity. Can the Christian faith throw any light on how these problems should be tackled?
Robert Waller concludes his investigation with the help of a theologian,
The Rev. G. W. H. Lampe and a historian, W. R. Fryer
Among those engaged in situations of social power, they meet
Joseph Hunt , an industrialist and Sir Alfred Roberts , a trade union leader

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Clergy Orphan Corporation by the Rt. Rev. Cuthbert Bardsley , Bishop of Coventry
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to the Bishop of Coventry, The Clergy Orphan Corporation, [address removed]
The Clergy Orphan Corporation was founded 208 years ago to relieve the distress among orphans of clergy of the Church of England and the Church in Wales. The need arose-and still remains — owing to the relatively small stipends of the clergy, which precluded savings. Young families were-and still are-often left in a difficult position.
The cost of caring for these children, either by accepting them into the Corporation's own schools at Canterbury and Bushey, or making grants for their education at other schools, is met to a certain extent by endowments, but it is dependent, for most of its funds, on subscriptions and donations.

Soames is perturbed to learn that June Forsyte has been talking to Fleur. Under the pretence of furthering her husband's interests, Fleur plans ways and means of meeting Jon Forsyte. She arranges to take Kit to the seaside so that she will be near and able to meet Jon, and ' accidentally ' encounters him in the train en route.

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.
