: The Lambeth Walk

A series in three parts introduced by Bishop Richard Holloway 1: Waiting for the Return to Rome?
This July some 500 church leaders, representing dioceses in 164 countries around the world, gather at the University of Kent. To an outsider, the delegates might seem to cover a wide spectrum of churchmanship, yet all belong to churches in the Anglican tradition and come to the Lambeth
Conference at the invitation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, as part of the Anglican Communion. To observers used to the idea of the Roman Catholic Church, with its central authority expressed through the Pope, the vision of such diversity is confusing.
Bishop Richard Holloway asks leading members of the Anglican Communion where Anglican authority lies. Director STEVE MORRIS

Hatfield is where Queen Elizabeth I grew up. The house that was built in the grounds of the Royal Palace has secret rooms, and staircases and hidden windows. Antique furniture expert John Bly makes a discovery, and high up in the west wing the finest needlewomen of five counties are saving Hatfield's rotting furnishing and fabrics.

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.
