: Meeting Point: 'Kingdom Come!'

Lord Soper - public speaker, parson, peer
What lies behind his public image?
A film about the variety of his work both as an open-air speaker and as the Superintendent of the West London Mission - "a place where people try to practise what is preached - a workshop of the Kingdom of God."
From the North
(Repeated tonight at 11.32)

Donald Soper is well known as an outstanding Christian controversialist (open-air speaker at Tower Hill and in Hyde Park, broadcaster, preacher) - and now peer.
What does Lord Soper do when he is not in Hyde Park? In seeking the answer we found ourselves investigating what must be one of the largest and most comprehensive networks of voluntary social service in the country-the West London Mission. Donald Soper has been in charge of it for thirty-two years. This brief film portrait tries to put into perspective the many aspects of his work.

Like most northern towns, Furness urgently needs new factories to provide jobs and opportunities. When an American Trade Delegation comes to look over Furness as a possible site for a new plant, the red carpet is laid out in no uncertain fashion. But what happens when the pretty teenage daughter of the industrialist is accused of a petty crime? Do you try to hush the matter up, hoping it didn't really happen, or do you make an international issue out of it? And what happens to the new project either way?

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.
