Prayer.... for What?
Should we pray only for spiritual things, or can we pray for a win on the football pools? Fr Herbert McCabe , OP, suggests that because we are children of God we should ask for things as children do, and leave it to our Father to allow the relationship to grow to its full maturity.

: Farming

Karl Marx described them as 'drunken, always a bad lot' and as 'recruiting-sergeants' for the farmer. A hundred years later the gangmasters are still a power to be reckoned with in the Fenlands. The farmworkers' union would like to see them swept away, but even the gangmasters' harshest critics admit they're probably a necessary evil.

: Match of the Day Live

Derby County v Chelsea BBC cameras are at the Baseball Ground to assess clubs of great tradition who were in the Second Division when they last met four seasons ago.
Then on the way to promotion, Chelsea won all six points home and away, while Derby dropped into Division Three.
But, under ARTHUR COX, County have hauled themselves back to the First Division with promotion in each of the last two seasons. They joined football's big spenders this summer, signing the England pair PETER SHILTON and MARK WRIGHT from Southampton.
How Derby are shaping back in the top company of the Barclays League, and to what extent Chelsea have shaken off last season's blues, will be discovered in the next
90 minutes.

Local Christians gather at the Camborne Wesley
Methodist Church to sing their favourite hymns. jjraise, my soul (Praise my soul);
When I survey the wondrous cross (Morte Criste);Blessed assurance: God is working his purpose out

The File on Fr Guadalupe Three years ago, Joe and Eileen Connolly left St Louis, Missouri for Central America in search of Eileen's brother, a Catholic priest.
Fr 'Guadalupe' Carney had disappeared in mysterious circumstances in the jungles of Honduras. Their search was to uncover a tangle of political intrigue and secrecy which stretched back to
Washington, but it was also to leave many important questions unanswered.
David Jessel 's film on the Connollys won the Royal Television Society's
International Current Affairs award in 1984. Now he reports on new evidence which sheds important light on Fr Guadalupe 's fate, and on the extraordinary journey of faith and discovery which the Connollys have made. Film editor RICHARD BRUNSKILL Producers COLIN CAMERON and DAVID WILLCOCK

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.
