: The Hills of Ruhanga

One hundred years ago white missionaries brought Christianity to Uganda. But God had been there long before Christianity - and they called him Ruhanga. He was a powerful, all-pervasive God, but he was accessible only behind a complicated hierarchy of diviners and evil spirits: through the intercession of the ancestors - ' the living dead.'
Everyman reports from a remote region in South West Uganda and discovers that the faith of Ruhanga is infusing an imported Christianity with a vitality entirely its own.

WAKO TAKAYASU is a general manager with Japan's largest trading company. YOSHIRO YOSHIOKA is a section chief with the country's major computer manufacturer. Takayasu is the traditional generalist whose promotion has depended on age and experience. Yoshioka is one of a new breed of specialists, whose rise has depended more on his own expertise and the company's success.

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.
