A series of programmes in which Christians think about their faith and its living expression
Called by God
Jean Baptiste Vianney was for forty-one years the cure of the parish of Ars in the Lyonnais district of France. He died in 1859. Has the life of a French parish priest of a hundred years ago any relevance to the lives of priests and people in the Church today?
Script by Michael Mason

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Queen's Institute of District Nursing by Robert Morley, C.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Robert Morley, Esq., [address removed]
The Queen's Institute is the only national body organising district nurse training. It also. provides refresher courses, does research into district nursing problems, administers benevolent funds for sick and retired district nurses, and pioneers district nursing services overseas. Under the National Health Service Act, financial responsibility for providing and maintaining district nurses, formerly undertaken by voluntary associations, was laid on the local health authorities, with whom the Institute cooperates closely in the interests of the service. The Institute is still an independent, voluntary organisation, and funds are needed for its support.

: Hugh David and Beryl Calder in 'FRAMLEY PARSONAGE'

by Anthony Trollope
Adapted for radio in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box
EPISODE 7
Characters in order of speaking:
Produced by David H. Godfrey and Bryan Izzard
Mark Robarts, the young vicar of Framley, has become a prebend of Barchester Cathedral. In fact, Mr. Sowerby, for whom he has signed those bills, has pulled certain strings to secure him this appointment. Mark's conscience is not at ease in the matter; but Sowerby's persuasions have overcome his objections, and he has accepted the place.
In the meantime Lucy, Mark's sister, has kept her secret: that Lord Lufton, before going to London, asked her to marry him, and that she, against the inclinations of her heart, rejected him.

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.
