: Women Priests: Time to Decide

Live from Church House,
Westminster, as the Church of England debates whether or not to ordain women priests. If the measure is passed today, around 1,200 women deacons could become priests in 1994, but whichever way the vote goes the Church of England could be in for difficult times.
The crucial vote is expected this afternoon. For the legislation to be passed it needs a two-thirds majority in each of the three houses - the bishops, the clergy, the laity. The voting is predicted to be very close. Commentary by John Barton. Introduced by Francine Stock. Director Steve Benson
Producer Helen Alexander
(Highlightsat 11.55pm. The debate is also broadcast at 10.10am and continued at 2.00pm on Radio 4 LW) ●STEREO

: Primo Levi

The Memory of the Offence Italian writer Primo Levi committed suicide five years ago. During the Second World War, Levi survived a year in Auschwitz as a prisoner of the Germans and the memory haunted him for the rest of his life. This film tells Levi's story through his own words, and those of his friends who remember his growing pessimism as he fought to explain an experience which defied description and which he feared was destined to happen again. As the horror of concentration camps revisits Europe in the Balkans, this film is a timely reminder of civilisation's potential for barbarism. Producer Denys Blakeway

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
