Explorations of the faith and beliefs of people in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances.
How to Get to Heaven in Montana
The Hutterites, one of America's fastest-growing Christian sects, have rigidly maintained their traditions, dress and language for over 400 years. Originally immigrants from Central
Europe, they now live in 300 communities in the US and Canada, with families that marry and reproduce among themselves - closed groups of people who are religious cousins to the Amish. But recently they have been rocked by a wave of desertions.
Tonight's film follows the crisis at the Flat Willow colony in Montana, where two-thirds of the Hutterite community have become born-again Christians. Families are divided and the future is bleak as a religious dispute looks set to destroy the Hutterite way of life forever. Producer Jane Treays

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.
