Hardly a tree, yet rich pasturage, strong Norse traditions, war relics, a landscaped oil terminal-in showing us these, and meeting his fellow islanders, Howie Firth indicates how they feel themselves to be more Orcadians than Scots. Yet their faith, centred on 12th-century St Magnus Cathedral, is the same.

God Bless America
' The hottest thing going in the United States is the evangelical community ... The way these People vote will be the deciding factor as to who will be the next president of the United States.'
(DR BOB BILLINGS, Moral Majority)
Until recently such extravagant claims would have been laughed at. but now the politicians may need to take them seriously - suddenly a Christian America seems to be on the march!
There are 40 to 50 million evangelicals in America today. All three presidential candidates claim to be born again and by far the most vocal and visible part of the evangelical movement is swinging sharply to the political Right. As preachers and politicians battle for supremacy, a broad but effective coalition marshalls the forces of this extraordinary phenomenon.
But how far can the dreams of a new and moral America become a practical political reality?
' We have an obligation to our children and our children's children to see to it that this American dream does not fail.'

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.
