: Everyman: No Longer Strangers

A journey in Wales written and presented by Donald Allchin. Wales often conjures up images of coalmines and rugby, daffodils and leeks, hymns and harps. For
Donald Allchin, a very English Englishman and a canon of Canterbury Cathedral, discovering Wales and the Welsh language has been to discover a scarcely known part of our Christian heritage. From the Celtic centuries, through the Methodist revival and to Welsh poets of this century he detects, despite the outward differences, a common experience of the nearness of eternity.
Each journey to Wales confirms for him the reality that the universe is not alien and hostile, that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. By their lives of faith and their prayers today they affirm that, in God, man is no longer a stranger.

The stars, many far bigger than our ' star the sun, are many millions of miles away and appear only as specks of light. Until recently it had been impossible to see any details of the stars. But thanks to a new technique called 'speckle interferometry' this can be done for the first time. Patrick Moore discusses the remarkable results with Professor Alec Boksenberg , Director of the The Royal Greenwich Observatory, Herstmonceux.

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.
