JONATHAN DIMBLEBY talks to
Sir Archie Lush in the first of two programmes
ARCHIE LUSH was ' one of the few ' who did not descend to his appointed place, the-coal face at Tredegar Colliery; instead, he worked and won a place at the local grammar school. He should have become a steady, responsible white collar worker, but unemployment and a chance street-corner meeting with Aneurin Bevan turned him into a radical organiser.

JEANNE LA CHARD , DESMOND WILCOX HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week:
Eastern Promise
In the five years since the Beatles made their pilgrims' progress to the Ganges in search of the meaning of life, thousands of their fellow-countrymen, disillusioned by the orthodox Christian churches, have turned to the East seeking spiritual comfort. All over Britain people are meditating; there are long waiting lists for Yoga lessons; and sects whose inspiration comes from Eastern mysticism have mushroomed. JEANNE LA CHARD looks at three mystic sects in Britain: the Divine Light Mission, who worship a 14-year-old boy God; the Sufis, originally a secret Islamic society; and Krishna Consciousness, whose saffron-robed followers believe that by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra about 2,000 times a day they will achieve enlightenment.

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.
