: Robert of Canterbury

Since his enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury in March
1980, Dr Robert Runcie has been at the centre of public life. This film follows his progress from a hog farm in Iowa to meetings at the White House, and hears his reactions as he meets Cardinal O'Fiaich in Armagh, and prepares to conduct the Royal Wedding.
As soon becomes clear, DR RUNCIE is no conventional churchman. He is particularly aware of the ambiguities of his office in today's Britain - ' a pantomime figure in the great national charade' or ' a centre of assured faith '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
