: The Sea of Faith

On Dover beach, the Victorian poet Matthew Arnold found an image of the decline of Christianity - the 'melancholy, long, withdrawing roar of the Sea of Faith'. Twenty years later the German philosopher Nietzsche was proclaiming the death of God. Today many people don't know what to believe any more.
In this series of six programmes Don Cupitt , Dean of Emmanuel College,
Cambridge, explores the revolution in ideas that has brought us from the secure world-view of the Middle Ages, to today's crisis of faith.
1: The Mechanical Universe In Galileo's villa at Arcetri, refurnished from the original inventory, Don Cupitt reconstructs the experiments which threatened the entire cosmology of Christendom.
For Galileo it meant the threat of the Inquisition; for the world it meant a mechanical view of the universe that in time found no need for the hypothesis of God.
The most creative response came from Blaise Pascal. Working as a scientist in 17th-century Paris, he came to see the very emptiness of the physical universe as the springboard for a new approach to Christian faith.

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.
