: CHRIST IN AFRICA

A Way of Life programme in which Christians think about their faith and its living expression
In April of this year HUBERT HOSKINS went to the Constituting Assembly of the All Africa Conference of Churches, held at Makerere University College, Kampala, Uganda. In May he attended the Assembly of the World Association for Christian Broadcasting at Limuru, near Nairobi, Kenya.
During this visit he made a number of recordings with Church leaders, theologians, and delegates to the Kampala Conference from many parts of the African continent.
Among the questions he put were: What is pan-Africanism? What is meant by Africanisation of the gospel and the churches? What has modem Africa to say of European missionaries? What do young. educated Africans today think about Christianity and Christ?
The answers given by Africans themselves can be heard in this programme.

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.
