: THE WAY OF LIFE

Christians thin,k about their faith and its living- expression
A NEW WAY OF LOOKING
AT THE GOSPELS
The second, 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.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the National Deaf-Blind Helpers' League
(Registered in accordance with the National Assistance Act. 1948) by the General Secretary,
Arthur R. Sculthorpe, M.B.E.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowedged and should be addressed to Arthur Sculthorpe , [address removed]
The League was formed in 1928 by a small group of deaf-blind people to help each other and enlist the interest of the public. Membership has increased to 1,260 and the League's activities now include clubs and material assistance. Blocks of flats are shortly to be built at Peterborough as a rehabilitation centre for younger deaf-blind people, and for this project £30,000 still has to be raised. Mr. Sculthorpe, who makes this appeal, is himself both deaf and blind.

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.
