: The Queen in the Caribbean

Parti
Belize and the Bahamas HM The Queen is in the Caribbean - on a journey that is to take her to those famous West Indian 'Islands in the Sun'. But before that - Belize on the mainland of Central America and the Bahamas where, as Head of the Commonwealth, she is hosting the Commonwealth Conference. The Queen remains Head of State of the former British colony of Belize and she's been visiting the 1,600 British troops who are still posted there. But for most of the week she has been in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, for the Commonwealth summit.
Although The Queen doesn't actually take part in the formal political talks she is on hand to advise, entertain - and maybe iron out a problem or two. Reporters

Peter Sallis and Brian Wilde with Jane Freeman
Joe Gladwin and Kathy Staff in The Mysterious Feet of Nora Batty
With the notable exception of Compo, Nora Batty is not used to anyone looking at her.

A series of ten films in which Alan Whicker talks to a wide range of enterprising Brits who've gone to live and work in the USA.
Diana McLellan is a Washington Times gossip columnist. 'The Ear', as she's called, came from Norfolk in the 50s. A prime target for gossip is the White House: President Reagan's advisor on the Middle East, is an ex-Brit from Gravesend,
Dr Geoffrey Kemp; and the State Department spokesman came from Wales, John Hughes. At George Washington University the Professor of American History is Englishman Marcus Cunliffe. To complete this group of Washington aliens, the former editor of The Times, Harold Evans - 'I feel angry and proud about Britain at the same time; here they think it's a quaint, sleepy country torn by incipient civil war between the classes....'

: Everyman: God is She

"Man was not made for woman, but woman for man...." (St Paul)
Christians have always seen God as a hugely powerful father. And the fatherhood of God has always justified the subjection of women to male authority. Feminists argue that freedom for women is incompatible with Christianity - but where does this leave women influenced by feminism who want to remain Christians?
Five Christian women argue that if the church is to be loyal to its deepest insights the faithful must learn to say - God is She.

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.
