: Heart of the Matter

To be a Christian in South
Africa today and be true to the confession of the Church that Jesus Christ is Lord, you have to be engaged in the struggle against apartheid.
On the eve of Nelson Mandela's 70th birthday - his
26th in prison -
Joan Bakewell talks to
Mandela's compatriot, Dutch Reform Church leader, The Rev Allan Boesak.
With many other avenues of protest closed to blacks, many believe the moral arguments of religious leaders are now the only hope for South Africa. Allan Boesak is in a unique position in the anti-apartheid struggle because of his background in the very same church which once defended apartheid. This programme examines those original theological arguments, and asks what many Christians in South Africa now feel to be their duty. Is there room for peaceful reconciliation, or is a violent struggle now the only option? How should
Christians outside South
Africa respond, and what is the future for white
Christians in South Africa, if apartheid were to be abolished?

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.
