: The Lambeth Walk

Last in the three-part series Introduced by Bishop Richard Holloway Back to Reality?
This Sunday saw the end of the 1988 Lambeth
Conference. After three weeks together sharing food, worship and discussion on the wind-swept campus of the University of Kent, the bishops and archbishops are on their way back to their dioceses - back to reality.
Bishop Holloway asks the Most Rev Desmond Tutu , Archbishop of Cape Town, and the Most Rev
John Habgood , Archbishop of York, among others, to look back on the conference: has anything been achieved? Back in their dioceses, the delegates and their congregations face many hard human problems: extreme poverty and political conflict in the Third World; inner-city decay, drug abuse and social inequality in the so-called 'developed' countries of the West. Do the deliberations of the Anglican Communion have any bearing on such realities? Research REBECCA JENKINS Director STEVE MORRIS

Belvoir Castle
Lady Victoria Leatham continues her tour of some of the great stately homes of eastern England by calling on the Duke and Duchess of Rutland. She hears why his Grace ended up in the dog house, and shows how his ancestors solved the problems of keeping a castle home on a hill stocked up with food and fuel. Antiques expert John Bly makes another discovery, and a collection of muskets is evidence for historian
Brian McNerney of the days when the English aristocracy feared revolution.

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.
