Prayer.... Using the Imagination (1)
Few of us expect to use our imagination as an aid to prayer.
Fr Gerard W. Hughes , SJ suggests that, if we picture ourselves taking part in a biblical scene, our imagination can produce a deeper consciousness in us through which God can speak.

Coventry v Arsenal
Introduced by Jimmy Hill with Trevor Brooking
George Graham 's forecast, when he took over at
Highbury last year, was that Arsenal could be genuine contenders for the league title within two seasons. The timing looks right.
Last month's 14th successive win set a new Arsenal record. Coventry City did not need a trophy cabinet until they won the FA Cup last May, but all that Sky Blue excitement at Wembley has been hard to follow this season.

: Sports Review of 1987

Introduced by Desmond Lynam and Steve Rider
Live from the Television Centre, the very best of the year's sporting action, drama and entertainment. Once again, Britain's headline makers have gathered to help recall the memorable moments of 1987. and to pay tribute to the man or woman you have chosen as the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year. It was a year of achievement in particular for Britain's golfers. NICK FALDO won the Open, IAN WOOSNAM the World Matchplay and both.under captain
TONY JACKLIN , helped engineer the historic defeat of the USA's Ryder Cup team on their own soil.
In football, England, with BRYAN ROBSON and GARY LINEKER outstanding, reached the European Championship finals, and Coventry City surprised everyone in the FA Cup. GRAEME SOUNESS took Rangers back to the top in Scotland.
In Rugby Union's first World Cup, Wales took third place, while in cricket's equivalent, England finished runners-up to crown a splendid year for
MIKE GATTING.
STEVE DAVIS regained his world snooker title but NIGEL MANSELL just missed out again as drivers' champion. There was a shock for LLOYD HONEYGHAN who lost his world boxing titles in unfortunate fashion after three previous defences, and in Rome there were upsets for STEVE CRAM and DALEY THOMPSON. FATIMA WHITBREAD was Britain's only winner at the World Championships.
Also presentations for the Team of the Year and for the Overseas Personality - 1987 proved a good year for STEVE CAUTHEN , STEPHEN ROCHE and PAT CASH, while MARTINA NAVRATILOVA won her sixth Wimbledon singles title in a row.

: * Everyman

Hope and Hallelujah!
At the New Testament
Church of God in Brixton
Pastor Vernon Nelson makes a passionate appeal for a return to the traditional values of the Protestant ethic
- hard work, high moral standards and the honest rewards of material success. His church is packed with obedient young people, joyfully proclaiming the truth of the Gospels and busily making progress with their careers. But are the increasingly popular black-led churches really answering the needs of Britain's black community? With songs and sermons the church members say yes; outsiders, many of them church drop-outs, are not so sure.

: The Secret Life of Paintings: 2: Christ Crowned with Thoms by Hieronymus Bosch

Revealed by Lady Wedgwood
A series of explorations into the hidden meaning of three paintings.
At the turn of the 16th century, when religion and politics were inseparable, the message of this deceptively simple picture was political dynamite. Bosch's language of symbols barely conceals a bitter criticism of the authorities of his day.
Beyond the political cartoon are deeper levels of meaning, illuminated by the new spirit of personal enlightenment and salvation that was emerging in late medieval thought. Lady Wedgwood reveals the way in which Bosch builds up a metaphorical picture of the human personality and how it was seen to reflect both the celestial world around us and the divine beyond.

Greenwich Observatory, who has been deeply involved with the project ever since it was first planned.

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.
