: Making Sense

The first of ten programmes. Making Sense ... of Religion
'Now that technology has taken human beings right into the heavens, into what our ancestors regarded as the very dwelling-place of God, is there still a place for religion? Or are we now so much controllers of our own destiny that religion no longer makes sense?'
The Rev Donald Reeves , rector of St James 's,
Piccadilly in London, believes it does, but it must be a religion which takes account of the real world and which finds new ways of speaking about God.

Horse riding is arguably the most dangerous sport in Britain, with eight riders a day involved in accidents on the roads. Yet the sport is increasingly popular and over three million people now ride regularly, many of them taking to the roads at some time.
Riding school owners, medical experts and the police consider possible solutions such as off-road facilities for riders.

: Everyman

Say One for Me
'I pray for people in Ethiopia ... and I do have a best friend who's got eczema and it's irritating her and I pray it gets better.' Just like that 10-year-old, believers and unbelievers pray for extra power in times of difficulty. Each faith reveals its personality in the way requests are made.
But perhaps God shouldn't intervene if our freedom matters. What's more, if help comes for some worthy cases, why not for others? Some find it helpful to think of prayer releasing what's in nature rather than calling in power from outside. In spite of the puzzles, asking comes naturally and people feel it helps.

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.
