: Man Alive: Priests Who Sin

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
Reporters: Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Trevor Philpott, Desmond Wilcox

This week: Priests Who Sin
In the Roman Catholic Church priests are celibate - there must be no women in their lives - God's laws are to be obeyed and Canon Law, determined by the Vatican, is stern and unyielding. Millions of Roman Catholics throughout the world are concerned about the conflicts within their Church. Rows about contraception; arguments about celibacy; discussions about inflexibility. The priests argue too. Ten thousand of them have quit in the past ten years; many have married in defiance of their Church, suffered excommunication. Who are the priests who, in the eyes of their Church, have rebelled or sinned?

: Thirty-Minute Theatre: Boa Constrictor

by William Bast.
With Vivienne Martin as Frankie I, Frederick Bartman as Johnny I, Helen Downing as Frankie II, Bari Johnson as Johnny II, Ronald Lacey as Frankie III, Philip Locke as Johnny III, Gwen Nelson as Mrs. Daily

It is vividly and entertainingly illustrated in tonight's play that Frankie and Johnny might be any swinging, but insecure, young couple. They are going to an important party and Mrs. Daily, the char, surprises their slightly hysterical preparations. She sees many peoples' lives, but can only be 'a benign, sorrowful, but helpless witness to their madness'.

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.
