... of Evil
Donald Reeves asks: 'If there are no adequate intellectual explanations of how an apparently good God permits evil, then what can be said and what can be done?' Part of the answer, he argues, is to listen to the survivors of evil, and for everyone to acknowledge thier own potential for evil.

: The Big E

The first of six programmes. Clean round the Bend presented by Chris Baines.
'Clean round the bend? - We must be', says Chris Baines.
By keeping ourselves and our homes clean we pour thousands of gallons of chemicals down the drain every day - and it doesn't have a very pleasant effect on the environment.
Part 1 of today's The Big E asks: 'Is there anything we can do about it?' Part 2 at
11.25pm points towards some of the answers.

: Everyman: Life Under Occupation

Twenty-two years ago this week, Israel defeated her Arab neighbours in the Six-Day-War and took control of the Gaza strip: 140 square miles of land, with a Palestinian population which is now 650,000. This was the beginning of Israeli occupation.
Eighteen months ago this week, violence broke out on the streets of Gaza: the Intifada, or Palestinian uprising, was born.
Everyman tells the story of the people who live and work under occupation:
Palestinians and Israelis - the occupied and the occupiers. At the heart of this film is a committed Christian, Dr Swee Chai Ang, who, after six years of work in Lebanon, has come to work in Gaza's Ahli Arab hospital.

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.
