: It Could Happen to You

Have you ever been aware of, or influenced by, a presence or power, whether you call it God or not, which is different from your everyday self?
Answers to this question have convinced a group of scientists in Oxford and Nottingham that most of us will at some time experience a ' presence or power ' beyond ourselves. Everyman reports on research which suggests that people who see visions, hear voices, or simply feel the presence of their God can no longer be considered part of a tiny minority of saints or psychotics.
What are these experiences, and what effect do they have? Peter France meets the scientists, and some of those prepared to talk about these very private encounters.

: Cobbett: Horseman of the South

In 1821 WILLIAM COBBETT rode on horseback through the South of England, at the age of 58, to discover the truth about country life. He was a farmer, reforming politician, and chronicled his observations with insight and passion.
Gaynor Kimpton-Scott retraces his historic rides: she and her horse Rahji roam through the country-side in high summer-and find experiences just as surprising as farmer William Cobbett 's.

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.
