At the heart of the events which make our daily headlines lie deeper concerns: the principles on which our decisions are based, the effective values and beliefs which shape our society.
In this week's filmed report Peter France investigates one such issue, questioning our responses and looking, with those most directly concerned, at the fundamental values behind the news.

: Discovering English Churches

A series of ten programmes with Donald Sinden
1: Through a Glass Darkly
There are over 16,000 parish churches in England. Each of them is unique, a product of its own particular history, but each shares in the tide of events that shaped this country and its people. The conversion of Anglo-Saxon Britain to Christianity brought a fusion of the vigour of the pagan world with the classical tradition of Ancient Rome - a fusion from which the ways of thinking of the medieval mind were to emerge. This week DONALD SINDEN visits the churches of St Bartholomew the Great, Smith-field, London, and St Lawrence, Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire.

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.
