: The Sea of Faith

Don Cupitt , Dean of Emmanuel College,
Cambridge, explores the revolution in ideas that has brought humanity from the Middle Ages to today's crisis of faith.
2: The Human Animal
Until the time of Charles Darwin , faith had followed the book of Genesis in giving man a unique place in nature. Suddenly Darwin's theory of evolution seemed to make the idea of special creation by God impossible.
Sigmund Freud 's consulting room in Vienna was the scene of an even greater challenge to Christian orthodoxy. Freud applied Darwin's ideas to the human mind and came to see all religious experience as a neurotic delusion.
But his most influential pupil disagreed. Carl Jung spent a lifetime exploring the experience of God as a power in the depths of the psyche. Assistant producer PETER DALE Produced and directed by PETER ARMSTRONG (R)

Culture: Jack Lang has been France's Minister of Culture since 1981. As the Mitterand administration attempts to retain power in next month's general election, Lang explains why the arts are so important to the French people - and their politicians.

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.
