: The Battle for Britain's Soul

2/4. Power to the People. The Rev Peter Owen-Jones explains how Victorian Britain marked a real turning point in religion, as a growing number of people - backed up by scientific discoveries - started to doubt the very truth of Christianity. Meanwhile, after nearly 2,000 years of being told how to worship, some discovered different ways of finding God as the new urban and industrial working class formed their own brand of Christianity, challenging the power of the man in the pulpit, while thousands deserted the Church of England to attend their own chapels.

: Map Man

6/8. William Mudge 's Ordnance Survey 1st Edition (1809). The end of the 18th century was a bad time for Britain - the American colonies had just been lost and the French fleet was on standby to attack Britain. This threat of invasion resulted in the army employing 29-year-old Lieutenant William Mudge to map the country in an attempt to see where the French were likely to target. Nicholas Crane tries to reproduce the triangulation methods of Mudge's original survey, but will he come a cropper across the dangerous wilderness of Dartmoor? Director Richard Maude

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.

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.
