: THE WAY OF LIFE

A series of programmes in which Christians think about their faith and its living expression
' The Holy and the Unholy City '
Prophets and poets have for long dreamed of a Holy City, a redeemed human society. Is this dream related in any way to the earthly cities of our unredeemed society or is it a never-never land of the imagination? This is one of the questions dealt with by NORMAN NICHOLSON in this anthology of poetry of the present and the past.

Many suffering from poliomyelitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases are confined to wheel chairs and all require care and professional treatment. The girls execute work of a high standard, including church vestments, embroideries, children's wear, and dressmaking.

: Robert Harris and Reginald Beckwith with June Tobin in 'AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS'

The novel by Jules Verne
Adapted as a serial in thirteen parts by Lance Sieveking
PART 8
Cast in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
It is now October 26, 1872. Phileas Fogg has used up twenty-four of the eighty days in which he has wagered he will go round the world. Using various means of transport, he, his servant Passepartout, and the Indian girl they rescued have reached Calcutta.
Here they are immediately taken before a magistrate because back in Bombay Passepartout had caused a row by going into a temple with his shoes on. Detective Fix thinks Fogg is a bank robber and hopes to delay him until the arrest warrant arrives from London. But bail is allowed. Fogg, Passepartout, and the girl skip on board the Mongolia, which sails at once for Hong Kong

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.
