: MEETING POINT

An Egg in Your Face
One of my earliest recollections was standing in the street outside my home and a woman asking me if I was the son of the Rev. William John Calvin. I said I was. The woman put her hand in her shopping bag and brought out an egg. She smashed it in my face
I always had as a boy this sense of not belonging, of being in a minority group on every matter and issue
But it left me with this almost neurotic sense of having to surround with care people who are under oppression, under attack, or unable to stick up for themselves An Egg in Your Face traces the life of The Rev. Noel Calvin the Congregational Minister of Trowbridge, Wiltshire and urges through his eyes the expanding need for tolerance and understanding in religion, politics, and all human attitudes

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.
