: British Sign Language

A Beginner's Guide
Lorna Allsop explains that although each country has its own sign language the underlying 'rules' are similar.
One of the most important 'rules' of BSL is the way that signers use space to place people and things in relation to each other. This 'placement' is important when giving descriptions of where objects are on a table, describing a street scene, describing a room, and many other situations.

: Everyman

The Fully Ordained Meat Pie It would be analogous to consecrating a meat pie on the altar of God to ordain a woman.
These uncompromising words come from Fr Ian
Herring, an ordinary
Australian vicar. For nearly 2,000 years men have assumed that the role of women in the Church is to support them, not to be their equals.
But now all that is changing. In the Anglican Church in the United States women have already been ordained as priests. In England they are practising as deacons, and the question of their full ordination is under active consideration. In Australia in October 1987 the Synod of the Anglican Church took a crucial vote on the subject.
This film follows the women who were in the front line of the battle through the last tense stages of their campaign.

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.
