Asian women facing domestic difficulties are reluctant to seek help and guidance from advice centres. Binda Rai visited Southall to find out how the community has responded to the particular needs of such women and in a film report she talks to a victim of domestic violence, a Hindu preacher and a women's legal rights worker. Runa Laila entertains with a Punjabi song.

: Songs of Praise

from Euston
London's Euston is a place to hurry through: an area of railways and roads, of cheap hotels and down-at-heel housing, of office blocks and institutions. But for many people it's home, a place to care about and a place to live out their faith.
Rosemary Hartill takes a look at how the church copes in the city, and meets some of the local residents. Maria Smart has lived in the area for over 40 years. She tells Rosemary about the pleasure of coming back to church after a long absence caused by her divorce. John Gaffey talks about the pleasure he gets working at Euston Station, and children from Argyll School reflect on their different faiths. Together they sing their Songs of Praise with Christians from the churches of Euston and King's Cross, in New St Pancras Parish Church.
Fill your hearts with joy and gladness (Regent Square); When I survey the wondrous cross (Rockingham); Morning has broken (Bunessan); Godspell medley; Lord for tomorrow (Providence); When I needed a neighbour; Thy hand, 0 God, has guided (Thornbury); The day thou gavest (St Clement)

: Omnibus

Presented by Humphrey Burton Tonight: images sacred and prophane.
How do you paint a portrait of someone who is both man and God, someone of whom there is no written description? Did he have blond hair or black, brown eyes or blue? Problems like these have confronted every artist trying to depict
The Face of Christ. The results have been diverse, from Christ the Emperor to Christ the peasant. Tonight, the art critic Waldemar Januszczak reassesses Western civilisation's most potent image. Meanwhile in the secular world Omnibus encounters make-up artist Paul Gobel and photographer David Bailey as they use human faces not as subjects but as canvases on which to create their own startling effects.

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
