: People's Service

From the Parish Church, Rogate, Sussex. Conducted by the Vicar, the Rev. Kenneth Mathews
Christ's work of heating and teaching had aroused the hostility of the religious and political leaders, and the people had begun to lose interest in him. A plot against his life was already being hatched. So he withdrew for a while from his public ministry and spent some time concentrating all his teaching and training on his twelve Apostles. Today's broadcast shows how this period of intensive training reached its climax at Caesarea Philippi, when for the first time his Apostles began to realise who he reaUy was and what he was calling them to do.

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.
