: Padre Pio

Another chance to see the award-winning film
In September 1968 a priest called Padre Pio died in a remote convent near Foggia in the South of Italy. For 50 years he had borne on his body five bleeding wounds corresponding to the five wounds of Christ. Countless people believed he worked miracles - that he cured the sick, was capable of being in two places at once, and that he had a terrifying insight into men's minds. A hundred thousand people attended his funeral; they included scientists and doctors, bishops and cardinals, as well as the local people who loved him and who had built up a thriving tourist industry during his lifetime.
Filmed in the last months of his life, this is the story of the life and death of the priest they called a saint.
This film received the first prize in the documentary category at the First International Christian Television Week at Monte Carlo Written and narrated by PATRICK O'DONOVAN


Unknown: Patrick O'Donovan
Produced By: Mischa Scorer

: Behold the Wood of the Cross

God's understanding of human suffering is epitomised in the Crucifixion. For 1,500 years many sections of the Christian Church have expressed this thought in a special service called the Good Friday liturgy.
This short devotional programme explains the meaning of this ancient ritual.

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.
