: 20,000 LEAGUES

UNDER THE SEA by JULES VERNE freely adapted as a serial in eight parts by, Lance Sieveking
Part 2
It is July 6, 1866. For many months the entire world has been puzzled by strange reports of ships having been chased and attacked by an enormous Thing. The Marine Department in Washington has fitted out a fast frigate to scour the oceans and kill the monster, and has invited the French naturalist, Professor Aronnax, to go with the expedition.
Off the coast of Japan the Thing is sighted, immense and luminous, and as it rams the ship with its great tusks the Professor is swept into the sea.

: THE WAY OF LIFE

Christians think about their faith and its living expression
THE WORLD IS MY PARISH
Has the time arrived when Christians from Asia and Africa might come to Britain as missionaries?
This is one of the questions raised in a discussion by six leading non-European Christians of the significance today of Christian mission. Chaired by the Rev. G. APPLETON , Vicar of St. Botolph, Aldgate, and formerly Secretary of the Conference of British Missionary Societies, these visitors to Britain concluded that the quest for unity among all Christians is inseparable from the mission of the Church.
Taking part are:
The Mositi Rev. H. SUMITR , Moderator of the Church of South India
The Rev. D. T. NILES , D.D., General Secretary of the East Asiia Christian Council
The Rev. P. A. POTTER. formerly General Secretary of the World Student Christian Federation
S. H. AMISSAH , Headmaster of Wesley College for Boys; Kumasi, Ghana.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the League of Friends of Chailey Heritage by Celia Johnson , C.B.E.
Contributions (preferably bv crossed postal ordier or cheque will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Celia Johnson , C.B.E.[address removed]
Celia Johnson is appealing for a swimming pool for the crippled children of the Chailey Heritage in Sussex. The pool will be specially designed to meet the needs of crippled children, thereby granting them the glorious opportunity of esciping from their wheel-chairs or throwing off their heavy surgical equipment. Not only will this allow them a real sense of freedom, fun, and happiness, but it will unquestionably have a most beneficial effect both physically and mentally.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
