: Martin Luther-Heretic

by WILLIAM NICHOLSON starring with Five hundred years ago Germany was a cluster of little dukedoms, the countryside was ravaged by plague and devils hunted for souls. In this world of supernatural power and sudden death there was one certainty: that the Day of Judgment awaited all.
Martin Luther was obsessed with the terrors of damnation. His relentless drive to resolve his private nightmare led him step by step into the world of power politics and into conflict with the most powerful instrument of control Europe has ever known: the Holy Roman Church.
' Notorious heretic, child of Satan' was how the Pope denounced him. His teaching makes for rebellion, war, murder, robbery, arson and the collapse of Christendom.'
Martin Luther was bom 500 years ago this week. and the MEDIEVAL PLAYERS

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
