: Panorama

In the Church of England the recent passionate arguments about the ordination to the priesthood of women or of practising homosexuals are symptoms of a much wider debate. Should the hierarchy of the established church - with its historical emphasis on compromise and consensus - yield to the increasingly vocal calls from both Evangelicals and Anglo-Catholics for a more clearly defined lead? Should the C of E be more involved in politics or less?
David Lomax talks to the Archbishop of Canterbury and assesses the mood of the Anglican faithful in parishes in Essex, Cornwall and County Durham.

Written and presented by Barry Norman
Last in a ten-part series which tells the story of Hollywood from the coming of sound to the present day. Hollywood Now
As Hollywood moved into the 1980s, there were signs that all was not well in the movie capital. Rising costs, rampant 'juvenilisation', and changes in studio ownership were causing a crisis of confidence in the film-making community. Could this be the end of the Hollywood Dream? In the last programme of the series,
Barry Norman looks at the state of Hollywood's health today, and with the help of Steven Spielberg
Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood he asks, can Hollywood survive?

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.
