Religion in the Modem Universities

Again he meets staff, chaplains, and students from the home country and from overseas.
A programme in August will conclude this investigation of the place of religion in the life of the English Universities today.

: 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 9
Produced by Norman Wright
Repeated on Tuesday at 3.0
(Robert Harris broadcasts by permission of the Directors of the Old Vic Trust)
November 7, 1872. Travelling by steamer, balloon, elephant, and other forms of transport, Phileas Fogg has arrived at Hong Kong with his servant Passepartout and the Indian girl, Aouda. Thirty-six of the eighty days have been used up; they are a day behind schedule, and Fogg has only forty-four days in which to win the £ 20,000 wager.
Mr. Fix the detective is trying to delay
Fogg (whom he believes to be a bank robber) until the warrant arrives. He lures Passepartout into an opium den, and as a result Passepartout is later carried aboard the Carnatic, which immediately sails. Meanwhile Phileas Fogg and the girl are dining at a hotel.

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.
