: 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. 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.

The arts and media programme presented by Russell Davies including:
Art: the Tate Gallery's exhibition 'Forty Years of Modern Art 1945-85' presents an account of painting and sculpture since the war. Does the Tate collection truly represent the range of modern art?

Print: despite having written only three books in 30 years, William Gaddis has been called one of the great talents of contemporary
American fiction. In his first television interview he speaks of his newest and shortest novel, Carpenter's Gothic.
Theatre: Russell Hoban 's dramatisation of his novel
Riddley Walker , is premiered this week at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre. The story is set hundreds of years in the future after a nuclear war, but the world seems more like that of the past.

: Pandora's Box

[Starring] Louise Brooks
also starring Fritz Kortner, Franz Lederer, Carl Gotz
G.W. Pabst's screen version of Wedekind's play caused a furore when it was released in 1928 and made an overnight star of Louise Brooks. Her cool, innocent expression and beckoning smile gave her an extraordinary eroticism as Lulu, the prostitute who inspired evil unawares.
Music to accompany tonight's presentation has been selected by Carey Blyton. Critic Ado Kyrou said that Louise Brooks was the only woman who had the ability to transform any film into a masterpiece.
The performance Pabst extracts from Brooks is one of the phenomena of the cinema. (Paul Rotha)

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.
