: THE WAY OF LIFE

A programme in which
Christians think about their faith and its living expression
The Harvest: War and Peace
The Harvest Thanksgiving is one of the oldest and most familiar acts of worship in the world. But in the peaceful rejoicing of Harvest it is easy to overlook that here, as in all Christian life, peace is won only through a struggle against destructive forces-both material and spiritual. What are the implications of Harvest for an age in which men are more conscious than ever before of the immensity of the problem of the world's food supplies?

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the ' Wireless for the Bedridden Society' (Registered in accordance with the National Assistance Act 1948) by the Bishop of Kensington, the Rt. Rev. Cyril Eastaugh , M.c.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The aim of the Society is that no invalid person in Great Britain or Northern Ireland who is aged or house-bound shall be deprived of the benefit of a radio set because of inability to meet the cost.
The Society depends entirely upon voluntary contributions in providing radio facilities to these isolated and suffering people-people of all ages and conditions shut up by their loneliness, devoid of comfort and entertainment.

: ' THE WOMAN IN WHITE'

by Wilkie Collins
Dramatised for broadcasting in twelve parts by Howard Agg
3 — ' The Shadow '
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
On his first meeting with Laura Fairlie at Limmeridge House, Walter Hartright, engaged by Mr. Fairlie to instruct his niece in the art of sketching, is convinced that he has seen her before, but he cannot remember where. He speaks of this to Marian Halcombe and tells her of his strange encounter with the Woman in White and her curious reference to Limmeridge and the Fairlie family.
Marian is at once perturbed and later comes across evidence which causes her to fear that Laura's future and her own are threatened by this sinister shadow thrown so unexpectedly across their path. Her fears are soon justified by the arrival of an anonymous letter, and the suspicion that leads her to go with Walter Hartright to the church at Limmeridge and the grave of Mrs. Fairlie.

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.
