: Passion

Christians and Jews in Oberammergau
An Everyman film for Easter-
Oberammergau - a tiny village in the Bavarian Alps, but a world-famous one. For one summer season every decade the villagers perform the Passion of Christ, and hundreds of thousands of spectators come to see it. The play is a spectacular act of faith: it goes back nearly 350 years, involves virtually every member of the village, lasts five hours in performance and is, in scale and longevity, unique.
But for more than a decade, the play has also been the source of great controversy. Is it anti-Semitic? Does it project the right image of Christianity? Should it be replaced, or changed, or even stopped? The controversy has been considered at the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church, and has also divided the village into warring camps, as first one faction, then another, has gained control. Oberammergau performed the play last summer for the 34th time. In this special Easter film Everyman presents excerpts from it, and reports on a controversy whose implications go to the very roots of Christianity.

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.
