Papa Wojtyla
A three-part series marking the tenth anniversary of the election of His Holiness Pope John Paul II.
2: 'No church which is grand and powerful can credibly transmit the message of Christ.'
In the Third World, many Catholic priests are politically active in support of the poor. Latin America is the birthplace of 'liberation theology', seen by some as a misbegotten mixture of Christianity and Marxism. Elsewhere, particularly the United States, there are calls for a Church that would accept homosexuality, the ordination of women, married priests, divorce and contraception. This second film looks at how Wojtyla's papacy deals with some of these problems, at the Vatican's part in maintaining the structure and traditions of the Church, and at why Papa Wojtyla has been described as 'the most adored but the most disobeyed pope in recent history'.

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.
