Christiana think about their faith and ite living expression
A WEEK AT TAIZE
A twentieth-century experiment in monastic life among Protestants in France
In 1940 Roger Schutz, a young Swiss pastor, settled in the small village of Taize, near the border between Occupied and Unoccupied France. Since then the Community of Taize, by its peculiar mixture of religion and worldliness, has excited interest among Christians of all denominations and in many countries.
Recently PETER HAMILTON spent a week at Taize, and his report includes recordings made there as well as in Abidjan on the French Ivory Coast, and in Algiers, where members of the Community are at work.

: GREAT ADVOCATES

A aeries of portraits of outstanding members of the English Bar by Lord Birkett
6: Thomas Erstine 1750-1823
' Thomas Erskine ,' says Lord Birkett, ' was the very greatest advocate who ever practised at the English Bar. There was a time at the end of the eighteenth century when his name was on every lip as the fearless defender of the rights of the citizen. Erskine's name is for ever associated with his victories in the cause of the freedom of the Press, the independence of the Bar, and the independence of juries.'
Erskine, who had been a midshipman and a soldier, became a lawyer almost by accident. But he was the lawyer his age most required, and his advocacy in the cause of individual liberty in face of attempts by the Government to pervert justice made both law and history.

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.
