: God and the Scientist

The fifth of six programmes
Evelyn Ebsworth , Professor of Molecular Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, talks to Ronald Eyre about the relationship between his own scientific discipline and Christian beliefs.
EBSWORTH: I do not believe that a chemical compound has a soul. I don't believe it's a thinking and spiritual being, whereas I believe that man is exactly that, that man has a spirit ... which is outside, but part of, his normal sphere of operations ... It is something that has to be recognised as part of the world we're living in. Director CHRISTOPHER MANN Producer PETER FIRTH

The fifth of six programmes Richard Baker talks to Bernadette Greevy
The international opera and concert singer, and one-time protégée of Sir John Barbirolli , recalls singing to the biggest audience of her career and probably the largest live audience of all time - one-and-a-half-million people at the open-air Papal Mass in Phoenix Park in Dublin in 1979. Her choice of music tonight is in sharp contrast to the great oratorios in which she has often sung, and reflects her taste for a more traditional and disappearing religious world: ST JAMES' CHOIR conductor THE REV JOHN O'BRIEN organist CONOR BIGGS

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.
