: BC: The Archaeology of the Bible Lands

A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson
11:By the Rivers of Babylon
-Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon sent the leading citizens of Jerusalem and Judah into exile in Babylon in 587 bc. Fifty years later Cyrus, King of the Persians, the new master of the ' Bible Lands ', returned the Jews to their city and allowed them to rebuild the Temple. But what happened during those 50 years ' by the rivers of Babylon '? It has been suggested that this was when much of the Old Testament was inspired and written-the time when priests and scribes compiled the story of the Children of Israel to help them keep faith in their past and provide hope for the future. It's a controversial theory and tonight MAGNUS MAGNUSSON considers it against the background of the rise and fall of the Babylonian empire.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
