Children of an Imperial God
'In Heaven there will be people of all races ... I don't think the Church has come to terms with that yet.'
(THE REV JOHN SENTAMU )
The missionary had as much influence on the British Empire as the politician and the soldier; his achievements may well prove more durable. Today, as a result of his success, the great majority of practising Anglicans are black - they are Africans, Indians and West Indians, spread across six continents.
Over the last 30 years this challenge - of a multi-racial English church - has come home. How has the Church, so successful at foreign missionary work, reacted to it? Using little-known archive footage, this film traces the story of black Christians and the Church in Britain.
'They made me feel there was one God for the white, and one for the black'
(MAXINE GOCAN, EX-ANGLICAN).

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.
