: Songs of Praise

for Advent from Skipton, Yorkshire
Advent is the season when the church prepares for the coming of Christ. In tonight's programme from Skipton in North Yorkshire Geoffrey Wheeler talks to some local people about how Christ's teaching has come into their lives - and through them into the lives of others in very practical ways. Among them is Phyllis Burns whose weekly class in elementary English has enabled many of Skipton's Asian wives to play a fuller part in the life of the community. The hymns are sung in the Holy Trinity Parish Church.
Lo, he comes with clouds descending (Helmsley}; 0 come. 0 come. Emmanuel (Ven'i Emmanuel); Blessed assurance; Take my life (Cross of Jesus); On Jordan's bank; A future and a hope: Hark the glad sound (Bristol); Turn back, 0 man

: Haywire

The second of a two-part screen adaptation of Brooke Hayward's best-selling memoirs, starring
'My mother, Margaret Sullavan, was a great star, my father, Leland Hayward, a producer. Together, they were a fountain of life and high spirits, the fulfilment of the American dream. But something went wrong... The joy vanished, leaving a great sadness; an ache for what was, what might have been. What might have been became for the two of us who survived, and for my children, an ambition, a hope for a new day, a brighter future.'

with Barry Norman
The Return of Raymond Mason
Raymond Mason left Birmingham after the war and has worked as a sculptor on the Left Bank of Paris ever since. He knew Picasso and Giacometti but he doesn't much like most modern art and his work is big, figurative, brightly coloured and, as often as not, tells a story.
Consequently it has been, till now, hugely unfashionable in Britain where he is hardly known. But fashions change and a big exhibition of Mason's work has opened at London's Serpentine Gallery. Omnibus went to Paris to meet the artist at work.
The Turkish born twin Pekinel sisters are well known in America and Europe as a brilliant piano duet with a large classical repertoire. Now they've come to Britain and Omnibus offers an opportunity to assess their very special musical rapport.

: Out on a Limb

The last in the present series
Eric Robson meets people who have gone out on a limb because of their convictions and asks what beliefs have sustained them.
This week he talks to Dr Allan Boesak , a young coloured South African whose election! in August as spiritual leader of 70 million Reformed Christians throughout the world brought him into direct conflict with the white Dutch Reformed Church and the South African authorities when he persuaded the World Alliance of Reformed Churches to declare apartheid a heresy and to suspend the DRC from membership.
Tonight he talks about the conflicts and tensions of being a black theologian and church leader in white South Africa today.

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.
