: THE WAY OF LIFE

Christians think about their faith and its living expression
A NEW WAY OF
LOOKING AT THE GOSPELS
The first of four programmes for Lent 1961
For more than a hundred years scholars have been doing intensive, and often highly technical, work on the New Testament. What help have they to give to the ordinary reader of the Gospels?
It is in the light of these researches that Professor DENNIS NINEHAM , of the University of London, considers the basic themes of the Kingdom of God and the Son of Man, as we read them in Our Lord's parables and miracles.

Roger Delgado and Carleton Hobbs

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Charterhouse Rheumatism Clinic by Stuart Hibberd , M.B.E.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Stuart Hibberd , Esq[address removed]
Rheumatism, the most common of illnesses, is one of the major problems in the health of the nation. The Charterhouse Rheumatism Clinic specialises in all aspects dealing with arthritis and other forms of rheumatism—diagnosis, treatment, and research into its cause and cure, but does not take in-patients.
Independent of the Health Service, it receives no State Aid and relies on donations and legacies to maintain its work. An additional £10,000 is urgently needed to help in its Samaritan work and to continue research.

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.
