A series of fourteen films looking at women in Britain today-their lives and their attitudes.

The world that seems the most resolutely closed to women is the world of God: the prejudice against women ministers and preachers is ancient. The Methodists have gone further than anyone else in admitting them to the ministry. They have women lay preachers.
Pauline Webb, one-time Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, is one of them. She is the subject of tonight's film.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
