: * The Interval A VACANCY HAS OCCURRED FOR A HUMAN

by SHEVAWN LYNAM
' Home is where one starts from ' as T. S. Eliot put it, and Shevawn Lynam 's start was in Dublin. But for twelve hectic and generally happy years she worked in Paris. Why then did she choose to go home and what did she find there on return? Well, initially, a vacancy had occurred-and she filled it. But more importantly, she found an answer to the problem that Paris, for all its vigour and civilisation, had hardly considered, ' what are humans for? '

: TO SERVE THE PEOPLE

Is the Church really geared to serve the people today? The Report, by Leslie Paul , on The Deployment and Payment of the Clergy, which has just been published, says ' no '; and it recommends a completely new look for the Church of England.
But is there a demand for drastic change? Are people, on the whole, content with things as they are-with a static, parochial Church in a mobile, shifting society?
Tonight's WAY OF LIFE programme sets out to find the answers to these questions
Produced by HUBERT HOSKINS

Unknown: Leslie Paul
Produced By: Hubert Hoskins

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

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.
