Commentators JOHN ARLOTT and JIM LAKER
' He has an authentic Yorkshire accent, a dry humour, a deliberately laconic delivery and a deceptively fast reaction to any movement or action on the field. Among long-distance observers of a rapid incident he is more likely than anyone else to read it accurately.' JOHN ARLOTT On JIM LAKER in Armchair Cricket.

Chinese Spirit Mediums
Narrated by william LUCAS
Soh Tee Kia, Lim Kai Cheng and Tai Kia Chooi are spirit mediums. They are diviners, healers and comforters to many Singapore Chinese who seek daily help from one of the many influential spirit gods.
But these three mediums are also skilled performers, under trance, in enduring physical pain to prove themselves powerfully possessed.
Their theatrical and brutal spectacles at large temple festivals, particularly to honour the entertaining and mischievous Monkey God, can be good self-advertisement and also an effective way for their cults' powerful sponsors to enhance their local prestige. Presented by SUE PUGH
Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS

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.
