The New Face of Leprosy
Leprosy is feared as a highly contagious and grossly disfiguring disease which is incurable and only strikes in the Third World. None of these are true.
A cure for leprosy was discovered 30 years ago at Carville Hospital, on the banks of the Mississippi river. But there are still 12 million victims throughout the world. Why?

: The Sea of Faith

A series of six programmes in which Don Cupitt , Dean of Emmanuel College,
Cambridge, explores the revolution in ideas that has brought humanity from the secure world-view of the Middle Ages to today's crisis of faith.
3: Going by the Book
Don Cupitt examines the challenge to the traditional
Christian view of the Bible as the 'Word of God'.
In Tubingen in 1835 David Strauss claimed that the supernatural stories in the Gospels were religious myths. His book made him famous, and destroyed his career. In the 20th century Albert Schweitzer was inspired by an even more radical view of the Bible to give his life to the cause of Christian compassion as the last of the 'missionary heroes' of Africa.

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.
