: Home on Sunday

Cliff Michelmore spends the next six Sundays travelling from a London town house to a cottage in the country via a room in a church and a flat by the shores of Lake Geneva, to meet some interesting people at home on Sunday.
They talk about their life and faith and some of their favourite religious music. This week he's in London with the actor Derek Nimmo , who is also a keen gardener with a rose named after him: 'Its description fits me entirely - a youthful bloom but inclined to mildew.'
Derek's choice of music includes the Parry anthem 'I was glad', and 'Summer suns are glowing'. It's sung in Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, close to his childhood home.

Limits to Forgiveness
Forgiving doesn't come easily to many of us.
James Nelson 's father still hasn't forgiven him for murdering his mother 16 years ago, though the son himself is about to become a minister of the Church of Scotland.
Myra Hindley might well have repented in the solitude of her cell, but how many are prepared to believe her? This week Choices asks whether there are limits to forgiveness. Why is it so difficult for us to differentiate between sinner and sin? And if we can't forgive others, how can we expect them to forgive us?

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.
