: Festival: The Dybbuk

by S. ANSKI adapted by JANE HOWELL from the translation by H. ALSBERG
According to Jewish legend, a dybbuk is the wandering and anguished spirit of a dead person which takes possession of a living body in order to find a resting place. It can only be expelled by exorcism, but even this does not always work.

: The Controversialists

Controversial opinions make headlines - particularly when the subject is racial prejudice, law and order or homosexuality. But how have these 'controversialists ' come to form their headline-catching views? And how do their convictions connect with their religious faith?
In this programme Trevor Beeson meets James Anderton, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester. A man who not surprisingly has been described as Britain's most controversial policeman: 'I believe that policing is very much the sort of thing that Christ Himself was doing when He was alive.' But should personal belief impinge on a man's public duty? How can a Chief Constable's proposals for harsher treatment of offenders be reconciled with the Christian Gospel of love and forgiveness?

' A series of 15 films
8: Love the Criminal Hate the Crime
Japan has the lowest crime rate of any advanced industrialised country. In a society where loyalty to the group and its common values is so strong, what kind of people commit crimes, and what happens to those who get caught? This film looks at the treatment of prisoners at Fuchu,'one of Japan's largest prisons, and at the rehabilitation process, which is largely in the hands of voluntary social workers.

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.
