: BC: The Archaeology of the Bible Lands

A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson
3: Bondage in Egypt
The Israelites' deliverance from bondage in Egypt (Exodus Ch 13, 14) was a corner-stone of their religious tradition. The Feast of the Passover celebrates their escape under the leadership of Moses, himself directly inspired by God.
Yet the Egyptians, in all the mass of written records they left behind, made no mention of an Israelite presence in their land - not even of Joseph, who, the Bible tells us, became Pharaoh's Grand Vizier.
Tonight MAGNUS MAGNUSSON looks at the ways in which the Bible story can be interpreted in the light of our knowledge of ancient Egypt. Bible reader Eric Porter

When the Prime Minister invited the nation to debate its system of education, he echoed what many parents and employers have been saying about modern teaching. But whose fault is it, if today's school leavers can't find jobs? Are they taught the wrong things in the wrong way?
Robin Day is the chairman of this televised debate tonight. Speakers include
Rt Hon Mrs Shirley Williams , mp, Secretary for Education her Conservative opposite number, Norman St John-Stevas , mp,
Lady Plowdcn with parents, teachers and employers.

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

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.
