: Sunday Worship

The Cost of Discipleship The fourth in a series of programmes for Lent
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. The speaker is Fr Michael Campbell Johnston , the recently-appointed
Provincial of the Jesuits for the British province.
Fr Michael has spent the past
20 years in Central America, most recently working with refugees in El Salvador. He knows at first hand the cost many people have had to pay for thirsting after righteousness.
Gary Davies joins the Corpus Christi Justice and Peace group live in Brixton for an act of worship.

: The Children's Princess

The Princess Royal in Africa and Asia
The Princess Royal has visited 23 countries in her 18 years as President of Save the Children Fund. Few have brought her as close to the front line of the fund's work as her latest visit to Africa. There she came face to face with the orphans of war, as well as the sick and the starving. In this special programme introduced by Martyn Lewis , the Princess Royal talks candidly about the plight of needy children around the world, her differences with officialdom over her personal safety, and her plans to work for Save the Children 'as long as they can put up with me'.

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.
