: Songs of Praise

from Londonderry
The divisions in Londonderry run as wide and as deep as the River Foyle that bisects the city into the Waterside and the City. In fact, 'to live across the river' can indicate whether you are catholic or protestant as effectively as the church you attend. But many in Derry today are attempting to build bridges towards those 'on the other side', like LIAM MCCLOSKEY , who at one time was in prison for terrorist offences. Roger Royle talks to him and other bridge-builders and people of faith in this Songs of Praise from St Columb's
Cathedral within the ancient walled city.
Let all the world (Luckington); All things bright and beautiful;
Make me a channel of your peace; I cannot tell (Londonderry air); Be not afraid; Abide with me (Eventide); In heavenly love abiding (Penlan); The God of love my shepherd is (St Columba)

: Whicker's World

Living with Waltzing Matilda Alan Whicker introduces the fifth of ten films in Australia's bicentennial year. Beautiful people abound in Sydney, and more than a few exotic blooms are on display at Lady Primrose Potter 's fancy dress ball, where Diana 'Bubbles' Fisher, society columnist and daughter-in-law of a former Archbishop of Canterbury chronicles proceedings attired as Brunhilde. Then there is the annual Sleaze Ball where
6,000 gays in this, the gayest of cities, pogo through the night to the laser lighting of Jeff Hardy , who once decked the displays at Fortnum and Mason. But first
Alan Whicker meets the man who migrated 12,000 miles from East Ham - to become a dustman - and the orphan abandoned in a Cumbrian workhouse 50 years ago, who is now an Australian cabinet minister.

: Everyman

Tell Us the Good News
In America, the Gospel is preached over the television airwaves by evangelists like Jimmy Swaggart , eager to win the hearts, minds and dollars of their audience for Christ.
Can it, will it happen here? Jim Woolsey hopes so. He has sold the Jimmy Swaggart telecast to 148 countries. Now he wants to bring it to Britain. Hard on his heels are fervent British companies, with their own productions, who believe the BBC and IBA have sold viewers short on religion. Until now the costs have been too high for individual enterprise. But will the growth of cable and satellite mean the price is now right for the prophets of the electronic Gospel to enter the sitting rooms of the nation?
Rosemary Hartill examines religious television today and asks whether change is in the air.

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.
