: The Calling

Last part of the documentary series looking at the trials and tribulations of becoming a Christian minister by following students at Queen's College, Birmingham, as they prepare fora life in the Church.
The Big Blip at God's Table. Agreeing about sexuality is difficult enough, but when students at Queen's share a course with Catholics from nearby
Oscott College they find that Christian divisions run much deeper. The thorny issue of Christian unity is thrown into relief by passionate debate between students, including former professional singer Lucy Winkett , one-time advanced driving instructor Monica Mills and ArthurWakelin, a plain-speaking ex-bus driver. In the exchanges that follow, such unity seems like a distant notion, and some are visibly upset. Directors David Pearson and Ashok Prasad Series producer David Pearson

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.
