: Home on Sunday

Sydney Carter talks to Cliff Michelmore.

Sydney Carter has achieved the rare distinction of writing a religious 'hit' song. His 'Lord of the dance' can be heard in churches all over the world each Sunday. His writing springs out of his painful questioning of many accepted elements of Christianity. An important part of his religious life is music, and boys from his old School, Christ's Hospital, Horsham, perform some hymns that are important to him.

: Everyman

A Passage to England
Nirad Chaudhuri in East and West ' I blush for the English character. Once they came to my country to conquer and rule; now they come to learn. I myself preferred them in their previous incarnation.'
The idea that the East, particularly India, possesses spiritual insights we in the West lack has become almost a cliche over the past 20 years. NIRAD CHAUDHURI sees the matter quite differently. He is 85, and one of the most celebrated Indian scholars and writers alive today.
In this film he tells the story of his ' passage to England', the attraction England exerted on him as a child in India, and the impact it made on him when he came here for the first time at the age of 57. He examines the Western pilgrimage to the East, and explains his dismay at it:
' If anything persuaded me of the degeneration of the English spirit it was this " Hinduising 'bv which I mean adoption of some of the sloppier forms of Hindu worship without any understanding of the essential elements of Hinduism.'

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.
