with John Harrison Sanctuary
Last Christmas a black communist threatened with deportation slipped into the vestry of an Anglican church in Manchester.
Viraj Mendis is still there, claiming sanctuary against a Home Office deportation order to return him to Sri Lanka where he will face imprisonment, torture, even death. His protector, Fr John Methuen, is condemned by the Home Office as 'thoroughly irresponsible' for his continued defiance of the law.
Gerry Northam has been following this self-imposed imprisonment, and asks what makes an Anglican priest - and former chaplain at Eton - feel duty-bound to confront the authority of the state. Research PAUL SAPIN

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.
